The Amulet

Killing some time in a comic book store in Waterloo with my son, I came across and purchased the first book in The Amulet. It’s a graphic novel by Kazu Kibuishi who is also the founder and editor of the Flight series.
The characterization in this children’s novel are excellently and quickly established with the heroine Emily and her brother Navin as they desperately follow their mother into an adventure in an alternate Universe. I love the wonderfully drawn robots Cogsley, Morrie and, especially, Miskit. I am eager to read Book 2.
Highly recommended.
