Reviews

Leyh skillfully balances magic and realism...readers familiar with Leyh's work in the Lumberjanes series will recognize her bouncy, dynamic art and figures that are nearly always in motion, keeping the energy high and the tone lively.--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This endearingly offbeat story emphasizes found community, the importance of love and friendship, and a fierce commitment to individuality--all powerful themes for middle-grade readers. --Booklist, starred review

Sweet and fierce, this is a must-have. --Kirkus, Starred Review

Full of magic and humor, this intersectional, layered tale offers joyful and affirming depictions of social outsiders and comfortably complicated families. --Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review

"Snapdragon is a unique and perfect story about a witch in the woods, girls who live in a trailer park, and the unexpected web of connections tying everyone together. It's a book about finding your power, in more ways than one. I laughed and cried, and you will, too!" --Molly Knox Ostertag, author of the Witch Boy series

"An absolute treasure. It's kind, vibrant, and alive, with characters you'll love immediately--I had to reread it right away, because I wasn't ready to say goodbye yet! An unforgettable story about loving ourselves, those around us, and the world we inhabit." --Gale Galligan, author of the Kristy's Big Day graphic novel

"Snapdragon is the shero for the girl in every reader, casting her magic and fire on every panel, every page. Volume 2, please!" --Rita Williams-Garcia, author of the Gaither Sisters series

Snapdragon invigorates a classic hero's journey with magic and heart.--The AV Club
