Graphic Novel Review of Korgi Book 5: End of Seasons by Christian Slade


Read for: Anticipated Release/Graphic Novel/ Love the Series!

Previous Books in Series:

Synopsis: "The beloved wordless fantasy graphic novel series reaches its stunning conclusion -- with plenty of thrills, laughs, and exquisitely illustrated animal magic.

Winter has arrived in Korgi Hollow... and with it, the end of the Korgi story. As Ivy and her Korgi pup Sprout frolic in the frozen weather, an ancient power is stirring. At long last, saddle up for the conclusion of this "silent" epic fairytale told entirely through detailed pen-and-ink drawings. Fire and ice will collide in a timeless battle between good and evil. Will the residents of Korgi Hollow survive the harsh cold? One thing is for sure: nothing will ever be the same."

My Review: It feels like I have been waiting ages for another Korgi book and am beyond happy to finally have it but at the same time kind of sad it has come to an end. I really like the way Slade brought the series to a satisfying end and also managed to do it with pictures. It was a lot of fun to be able to have my son read it with me this time around, in fact he finished before I did! I love the complexity of the world, a wealth of characters and a good amount of magic, and once again all shown to us with simple ink drawings. This is a story readers of all ages can enjoy, but especially those animal lovers! I am happy to have this whole series gracing my shelves!

My Rating: I thoroughly enjoyed this series and really loved the way this last book brought it all to close. It was beautifully illustrated with unique characters and a fun connection to our world.  I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
