Ferrets and Ferreting Out

Ferrets and Ferreting Out (Nola’s World #2)
Mathieu Mariolle, illustrated by Minikim, color by Pop
Graphic Universe, 2010
$9.95, Paperback
April 25th, 2012

Genre: Fantasy
Age: 9+
Description: Nola gives a presentation on ferrets saying that it is a little known fact that they rule the world. When two weird creatures attack Nola and her two new friends, Damiano and Ines, she is told the truth—Damiano is really a cat and Ines a flower and they come from the land of stories. In the end, Nola is kidnapped by some odd people who happen to look a lot like ferrets who demand her to tell them everything she knows about Damiano and Ines.
Opinion: Nola is a sad girl—her mother works all the time and acts like a teenager herself. Her only friend is two years older than her. She’s got a wacky personality and now finds herself stuck in a weird conspiracy—who can she trust? The art is all computer graphically drawn and is crisp and clear. This will really appeal to girls who say they don’t like graphic novels.
