Kibuishi has done his homework when it comes to myths and fantasy quest stories. Older readers might recognize moments that match Lord of the Rings or the Star Wars films. When I met the fox bounty hunter Leon Redbeard in the second volume of the series, I was immediately reminded of Strider from J.R.R. Tolkein's stories. There are rugged heroes, mysterious prophecies, and many examples of bravery and friendship thoughout the three books. It also successfully keeps its characters from falling into stereotypes. Few in this adventure are completely evil, and everyone offers understandable motives for their actions.

This is the first book of a 5-part series from the library, and I thought it was cute. It's about 2 kids whose mom is swallowed by a monster, and they have to save her. At the same time, there's an elf who wants the kids to get rid of his father, the Elf King, who's making everything horrible. They are teamed up with great-grandpa's inventions of life-breathing toys.

I have re-read it so many times and I just can't seem to get enough of the wonderful tale of Emily Hayes and her friends!

PSA: Book 6 is scheduled to be released either later in January or next September due to Kibuishi's sickness and because he spent a long time working on the new Harry Potter covers.
