"The world can be a dangerous place for a little creature." (28)

Tiny Ember (human appearance, but small enough to hide under a cup) wants to join school and have friends, but it isn't working out. When Ember meets sea turtle Lua on the beach, she offers to take him to the island where she went to school. Ember goes with Lua, but the island of lost creatures isn't the haven Ember imagined - at least, not at first. Other classmates make fun, and danger abounds. However, Ember has a good heart and a good soul, and eventually wins their classmates to their side.

A sweet fantasy adventure. ( )

More like a 3, but I really liked the charm of this story and the focus on the need for community. There's also the subtle message that your family doesn't have to be who you were born to but the ones who loved and took care of you instead.

The different creatures of the world were fun! There's a mixture of imaginative and realistic creatures. The artwork is simple but extremely effective in conveying the story. The scenes in the cave were a pleasure to look at.

I hope this could become a series.

Ember is a very tiny boy living in a world of giants. Each morning, he makes the long trek to Seawinds Elementary - where he longs to attend school - to try to make friends. But the only time a giant takes note of him, the boy mistakes Ember for an insect and tries to squash him. In his escape, Ember falls into a wastewater pipe and is taken out to the sea. There, he meets Lua, a kind and wise turtle who tells him about a far-away island where magical creatures such as himself are offered refuge - and an education. Lua offers to take him there, like someone did for her so many years ago.

But the Island of Lost Creatures is not the utopia Ember was hoping for. He misses Lua, who he'd come to think of as an adopted mother, and the other kids either bully or ignore him. His only friend is a silent rock that Em nicknames "Boulder." And a mysterious, glowing orb creature keeps stealing his stuff - including his journal, but not before class bully Viggo reads excerpts to the class. Can Ember overcome his homesickness and isolation and make new friends? Turns out, he's not the only displaced person on the island trying to find his way home.

EMBER AND THE ISLAND OF LOST CREATURES is a sweet middle grade graphic novel about being a little bit different and weird; feeling like you don't fit in or belong; and the magic of found family. The artwork is easily the comic's strongest feature - Ember and his fellow creatures are adorable, and some of the ocean panels are simply stunning. Lua, especially, is enchanting. The story is slow the get started, but the ending is well worth it. ( )
