Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kids love mysteries. Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys; the kids book section is filled with young detectives taking on mysteries and solving them. Bluewater Productions introduces a new girl super sleuth with more than beauty or brains. GOOD COMICS FOR KIDS

Violet is a great lead, and there is just enough clues being given out about a larger arc to keep you interested. GOOD COMICS FOR KIDS

This is a series that would appeal to middle schoolers and will resonate more with girls than boys. COSMIC BOOK

School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Violet Rose has the unusual ability to converse with inanimate objects, a gift that she uses to solve mysteries. With the ghost of her grandfather guiding her, the sixth grader tries to stop the nefarious plans of the Thorne family, a clan of dark witches, or "yagas." The book seems to be printed at a resolution higher than the original files, as the linework—especially the lettering—shows signs of pixel artifacting and grainy coloring. The captions are plagued with a number of typographical errors, a spread is placed incorrectly, and the listed chapter credits don't seem to correspond with the artwork. And most curiously, the book ends with a short introduction to a character that contradicts the previous four stories. The storytelling attempts to nod toward the tradition of hard-boiled detective work, while simultaneously appealing to a young, fantasy-loving crowd. It's a difficult balancing act, and one made more difficult by the frequent shifts in illustrators who can't seem to settle on a house style. There's some potential in the story, but it's buried beneath a series of questionable presentation issues.—Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, NH
