Early Praise for Nola’s Worlds

Nola's Worlds Volume 1

(Cross-posted to the Graphic Universe blog.) Nola’s Worlds volume one is getting some early praise from reviewers and bloggers! From Sequential Tart:

This French graphic novel (translated here into English) is a perfect adventure for readers of all ages….it’s so well written and fun that I just couldn’t put it down. In fact, I had to read volumes 2 and 3 right away after finishing this one! The art is a fantastic match for the whimsical nature of the story…

The coloring is fabulous with amazing shades and lighting that make every moment pop…

The price is amazing. $9.95 for 130 pages in full color? That’s unheard of! It’s excellent quality too, with pages that will hold up to younger hands and being stuffed into a backpack. It is a good story to share, but an even better one to read alone, when you can let your own imagination run as wild as Nola’s.

From School Librarian Stacy Dillon’s blog about books for Tweens:

This super cute pink haired girl just about jumped off the galley table at the Lerner Publishing preview during BEA. I wanted to read it, for no other reason than the super cute Nola and her friends on the cover. I wasn’t disappointed…

…[Volume one] comes to a crashing, cliff-hangering stop which may me cry, “Noooo! I need book 2!!!!”

Just the way I like it!

The art has a manga edge, but it’s not too much… what makes the book sing are the colours. Incredibly vibrant (in the Magic Trixie vein), just looking at the pages is bound to make readers happy.

And from our first review on Amazon.com:

…you have Matthie Mariolle, and minikims’ attractively designed book franchise in the making. The art is cool, and the story is aimed at the tweenish age group…

This is no Nancy Drew. This is no Sabrina. This is a book series aimed at todays’ anime/manga wise market with graphic novel sensibilities. Look for it to get more interesting.
