This completely adorable middle grade graphic novel is equal parts fun and humor. In Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types, five girls, who are fast friends have various adventures with the supernatural occurrences close to their camp, be it three-eyed foxes, a water monster, some booby-trapped caves, or a camp of brainwashed boys. Each chapter has a badge requirement prefacing it, with an adventure related to that activity - like the 'Up All Night' badge has them facing down the foxes in the forest, while the 'Nautical' badge has them being attacked by a river monster during their rowing training. The girls are in danger, yes, but they are also brave, smart, and are able to meet these challenges and fight their way through, and nearly be back in bed before being caught by their cabin leader, who simultaneously dotes on, and is also exasperated by them. The artwork is nice - while the lineart and character design doesn't impress me, the coloring and details do make up for it, giving it an overall cutesy vibe. I can't wait for more adventures with them.

This was my second time reading the Lumberjanes, Volume 1, and I enjoyed it much better than the first time. The story is hilarious. Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types isn’t your typical summer camp. The girls in the Roanoke cabin encountered three-eyed foxes and living statues, as well as mysterious boy scouts! Their encounters get more and more outrageous as the story progresses! I found it hard to differentiate between the girls when I first read this book. I would love it if there was a diagram at the beginning or end that gave a description of each girl with their pictures. I was able to tell them apart this time because I have read the recent novels based on the series. However, they may be confusing for new readers, so I recommend reading the stories over again.

This was not at all what I expected! I honestly thought it would just be girls having adventures while camping; and while it is, it also isn't. There is a whole other story going on and it's all bizarre and supernatural. Strange things are afoot and the poor Lumberjanes keep stumbling into weirdness. It's kinda like a female cast of the Goonies meets the Brothers Winchester. They are quirky and fun characters. Their reaction to things and their terminology is so 80's! It's like stepping back into my childhood. I got this because I thought it would be something fun that both my daughter and myself could read and enjoy. Well, this was a really fun read, and I have a feeling my daughter will like it even more than I did!

I can see why young kids love this graphic novel for its fast and it’s flashy. The youngsters in this novel are over-the-top, they’re loud, they’re super heroes (in their own way), and when they’re together they’re not afraid and they’re just what young kids need. This graphic novel is made up of adventures that the LumberJanes Scouts set out on to together. These girls are at a camp, a camp where they are not only living like ladies but they’re also learning how to live in the wilderness. While out on these adventures, they meet interesting and exciting characters bringing the girls closer together. At the beginning of each chapter, there is brief but extensive overview of the LumberJanes Field Manual and a badge that is highlighted during the chapter. The illustrations in the novel are bright, busy and colorful. The novel definitely had a lively, cartoon feeling to it. I enjoy it when an illustrator uses a variety of text fonts in graphic novels, as I think that brings these types of novels to life and this novel is living proof of that. There are so many different type of text fonts and sizes in this novel, I really thought this was a plus in this novel. My thoughts on the novel? I thought the story throughout was choppy and sometimes, bizarre. I had a hard time trying to decipher what was actually happening and why? So why were the girls beating up a bunch of foxes, saying, “what wacked-up eyes you haaaaave!” and then later after they had beaten them up, the foxes howled and said, “Beware the kitten holy.” What is this? I was thinking what had I missed. It wasn’t till way later, the words The Kitten Holy helps them get out of another mess. There seemed to be no logic to this madness at times. Yet at other times, brains…….you actually needed to have brains to survive some of their adventures and then, I thought this graphic novel was wonderful but yet, it failed to explain the full details in how they solved the puzzle using their brains. All in all, I think this book has potential, if it gets kids’ reading and it sometimes pulls their brains into the mix, I’m for it. I just might pick up another LumberJane graphic novel and see how it goes.
