Mera Tidebreaker by Danielle Paige & Stephen Byrne

Genre: Graphic Novel, YA

After watching Aquaman last week, I thought Mera was a total badass and was stoked to have received a copy of Mera: Tidebreaker.

This story goes back to the beginning to a young Mera and Arthur. Mera wants to prove to her father that she is more than just a princess. She is a warrior.

Arthur has no idea who he truly is and is about to find out.

For me, this didn’t read like the typical DC Comics I’m used to. It felt more like it was for a much younger audience..which isn’t a bad thing. My 7 year old son is a huge DC Comics fan like I am, so this was one that he was able to enjoy as well.

Overall, I loved getting to know more of Mera’s past and meeting the teenage Arthur Curry.

Aquaman and Mera are still relatively new to me. I’ve always been more of Superman and Wonder Woman kinda gal, so this was a good introduction.

Are you a fan of DC Comics? Who’s your favourite hero or villain?

Mera is teenage royalty, heir to the throne of Xebel, the other not-so-lost colony under the sea. But Mera is destined to wear a different crown, that of Atlantis. When the inhabitants of Xebel plot to overthrow their homeland of Atlantis, Mera is sent to kill the heir to the throne, Arthur Curry. As the unrest between their colonies grows, Mera and Arthur unexpectedly fall in love…will Arthur Curry be the king at Mera’s side in Atlantis, or will he die under her blade?

Bad Kitty: Kitten Trouble by Nick Bruel @MacKidsBooks @nickbruel #BadKitty

Genre: Graphic Novel, Middle Grade

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

20181230_032626_0001.png

Remember the Looney Tunes with Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner? This book totally reminded me of that, with Kitty always scheming & up to no good.

I love reading comics! The comic section in the Sunday’s paper was something I always looked forward to as a child.

Now that I have a 6 year old who has the same love for graphic novels as I do, this was perfect. Bad Kitty is geared to a younger/middle grade audience since it teaches empathy and sharing, but is still fun and comical for any parent or cat lover to read.

Even though my younger ones don’t have the attention span for chapter books, they still enjoyed looking at the pictures to see what was happening.

**Thank you Macmillian Children’s Publishing & Roaring Brook Press for my copy**
