This is second graphic novel for kids that I am reviewing for the Canadian Book Review challenge. And this book didn’t disappoint in terms of hilarity and fun. I loved this author so much that I decided to read to graphic novels by Claudia Davila
In the story, change is in the air.
One minute, Luz and her friends are snacking on chocolate bars and getting rides to the mall. The next moment, Luz’s mom can’t afford gas or groceries and the city is dimmed by blackouts.
Luz is not the type to sit in the dark. After all, her name — pronounced loose — means light!
Luz sets her heart on transforming her fossil-fueled world. But how much can one twelve-year-old do?
This book is for lovers of graphic novels. I never liked this kind of writing and never read the comics when I was a kid. But now I am absolutely entranced by this kind of book!
I love empowerment books like this with empowering messages for kids. The comic drawings are really vivid, colorful and they bring the message home to kids.
Claudia Davila, the author and illustrator of the book, lives in Toronto, Ontario with her husband and daughter. When there is a heat wave, Claudia cools off with minty lemonade in the shad of her neighborhood oak tree.
