Comics & Graphic Novel, Fantasy, Feel good

The Sprite and the Gardener by Rii Abrego, Joe Whitt


This is the kind of Graphic Novel that can be enjoyed by a younger audience and adults alike. It has gorgeous and emotive artwork while the story is complete in this installment without needing a sequel, something that is always appreciated.
Anyone who has ever been a new kid on the block will empathize with Wisteria, who is new to a particular area and has no do-you-remember stories to share with the rest of the sprites. She questions the use of their time and talent when she stumbles upon a girl struggling to bring her garden up to scratch. Wisteria starts to help covertly at first. What happens next is the main core of this short novel.
It is a feel-good story, with some touching moments, and its focus on friendship and teamwork is done well.
I would recommend it to anyone on the lookout for a semi-light graphic novel with attractive imagery.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
