Are you tired of reading Harry Potter for the umpteenth time? Craving a new story of another young British boy who discovers he possesses magic power? Look no further! In The Books of Magic by Neil Gaiman, 12-year old Timothy Hunter meets a mysterious man who takes Tim on a journey through the past, present and future. Through this journey, Tim learns that he is destined to be a powerful lord in the realm of magic with potent and forceful powers. My most favorite part of the book, however, is the art style. Which each part of the graphic novel, the art style changes dramatically, which plays well with the flow of the story. From splotches of watercolor paint to outlined, whimsical and comical characters, this graphic novel has nearly every type of art style to choose from. If you’re the kind to stare at displays at an art museum for hours on end, I recommend you read this novel!
