    *I received a free DRC from netgalley and the publisher. This does not affect my rating.*If you're new here, I love the Lumberjanes. I'll take these girls in comics and novels, any way i can get them to be honest. This one fell a little short for me, it was just missing something I can't quite pinpoint, but I still liked it a lot. Full disclosure, i've been in a major slump lately, so it could also be that.

    I've been disappointed by the last couple of volumes of the Lumberjanes graphic novels, but the middle-grade prose novels are more than making up for it.One small note, though: It's Billie Jean King, not Billy Jean King. If you're going to misspell something, the name of a feminist icon maybe shouldn't be it.

    The Moon is Up carries on directly from the where Unicorn Power left off, so you really do need to read these novels in sequence. However, I would also strongly recommend reading at least some of the comic series before giving the novels a try. Unlike some of the other graphic novel adaptations of late, these books don't do a great job of introducing the characters and contain some direct references to the comics. For example, the scene where the...

    I love the Lumberjanes comic and was thrilled when I heard about their middle grade novel series. Even more thrilled when I got to read a proof of the second book. The reality didn't live up to my expectations (having Lumberjanes things explained in prose wasn't as fun as seeing it in the comics), but I'd still recommend it to 3rd-4th graders who are interested in getting into or reading more about Lumberjanes.(I read an ARC ebook from NetGalley....

    Lumberjanes: The Moon is Up is a middle grade novel written by Mariko Tamaki, and illustrated by Brooklyn Allen. It’s based on the comic book series, Lumberjanes, which is a delight of a series. I was slightly worried that the novel would not be able to hold true to the comic, or would be ‘dumbed down’ for a lower readership. Luckily, that is not the case.This book is honestly wonderful. I want to give it to every girl I know, and cry ‘Re...

    What could top smelly unicorns and cloud people? Holy Carrie Fisher, its got to be pirate space mice! The Moon is Up was a fantastic continuation of both the Lumberjanes graphic novels and the Unicorn Power novel. I personally love that at this point they expect readers to be reading both formats and be familiar with Mal, Molly, Jo, April and RIPLEY! If you are not familiar with the Lumberjanes of Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crump...

    I love the Lumberjanes! I enjoy these books much more than the graphic novels because they take longer to read.This story is a great follow up to the first novel. But it is hard to follow the stinky unicorns from the first story. This one had a bit too many references to space for me, though it was pretty entertaining. The tasks that the Lumberjanes had to do were all space related, and it ended with a Moon Pirate mouse visiting the planet! You n...

    ***Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review*****I really, really enjoyed this - I love the Lumberjanes graphic novels and this is a great addition to that world. The story is fun - and I'm going to have to go and find myself a "proper" copy to check out the finished artwork. So much fun and so true to the characters that we already know from the graphic novels. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I love the way that the Lumberj...

    *I received a digital review copy from Netgalley*Unfortunately, this book wasn't as good as the previous installment. There was just something missing that I can't quite name. Despite this book being under 200 pages and containing frequent illustrations, I feel like it was longer than it was and dragged too much for me to enjoy it. The storyline also wasn't my favorite. It is one that I think would have worked better in graphic novel form. I unde...

    The previous Lumberjanes novel by Mariko Tamaki ended on a cliff hanger scene... Jo glimpsed from the window of the Roanoke cabin a round glowing craft like a tiny moon descending in the forest and a small figure slipping out into the night. Shortly after, cheese begins to go missing from the Lumberjanes kitchens. But Jo has a lot of other things on her mind: the first annual Galaxy Wars- four days of space-themed contests and activities- is abou...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing me an arc of this new addition to the Lumberjanes. Direct quotes are not finalI think this sequel to Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power! does a better job of introducing the five scouts of Roanoke cabin to new Lumberjane readers. I thought the character development left something to be desired, and I think the overuse of feminist icon names (e.g. "Oh my AMY POEHLER," "Holy Ruth Bader Ginsburg," etc.) may be alienatin...

    YES! Feminism and scouting and diverse, badass women! I am 100% here for this. Conveys all the magic of friendship and scouting (I am slightly in love with the badges) as well as a nice whimsical tale of adventure. All of the girls are really interesting in their own right and the group dynamic is just perfection. Also nice seeing a prominent female lead who's passionate about science in the shape of Jo. I need to read all the Lumberjanes comics ...

    Can't get enough of these hardcore lady-types and their adventures at camp whether it be up a mountain or in the cabin, getting badges and getting right with themselves and learning teamwork and the power of friendship TO THE MAX.Adore the novelized version of the graphic novels as much as the graphic novels themselves. With a theme of orbs and science-like adventures, this is a romp with plenty of puns!

    At just under two hundred pages the length for this series is perfect. I enjoyed the first book but found it too long with extraneous shenanigans.

    I enjoyed the first one in the series just a smidge more but this was still a fun read and a great adventure for the Lumberjanes of Roanoke Cabin!

    First of all, thank you Netgalley for always keeping me appraised of these books. I love them, but I unfortunately never hear about them except when they go up on the site. I don't follow middle grade as closely as YA so that's my fault because I really love these books and I wanted to read both of them as soon as I knew they existed.ANYWAY. Like its predecessor, this was a lot of fun. I think these books really capture the spirit of the comics a...

    This book draws on the popular comic book series, popularized by Noelle Stevenson. This is a novelized version of the story, written by Mariko Tamaki. First of all, if you put Tamaki's name on it, I'm already interested. Check out This One Summer and you will see what I mean.The book is high quality, engaging, and full of fun and action. It features illustrations to go with the text for those who want the graphic novel connection. Lumberjanes: Th...
