Lumberjanes: Beware the Holy Kitten

Finished February 13
Lumberjanes: Volume 1: Beware the Holy Kitten created by Shannon Watters, Nicole Stevenson and Grace Ellis, and Brooke Allen

This teen graphic novel features a group of five girls: Jo, Molly, Mal, April, and Ripley. They share the Roanoke cabin at the Lumberjanes camp. Their cabin counsellor is Jen. The girls are up for any adventure, and this volume contains four. Each of the four chapters focuses on a badge the girls can earn. Some of them already may have the badge, others get it through the events in the chapter. Here the four badges are Up All Night, Naval Gauging, Everything Under the Sun, and Robyn Hood. There is also reference to another badge one of the girls earns, Pungeon Master.
These books illustrate girls being outdoorsy, adventurous, caring, and helpful. I won the first three books in the series recently, and enjoyed the characters as they dealt with monsters and other troublesome creatures.


  1. I'm not the biggest graphic novel fan, but this one intrigues me. It looks like fun. Did you like it?

  2. I'm not the biggest graphic novel fan either, and obviously not the intended audience for this series, but I did like it.
