Nola’s Worlds by Mathieu Mariolle

May 29th, 2013 by


Have you seen this book on shelves lately: Nola’s Worlds #1: Changing Moon by Mathieu Mariolle? If so, congrats — you’re looking at something that’s traveled all the way from France! (It picked up a translation on the way.)

In Changing Moon, we meet…

  • Nola: a girl who’s always late for school, who’s fiercely independent (because her parents aren’t around much), and who gets mixed up with…
  • Damiano, a boy in her class that she may or may not have a tiny crush on. And he (along with his equally mysterious sister Inés) may or may not have super powers.
  • Nola confides in her best friend Pumpkin (yes, that’s her real name) and there’s also some suspicious alien/creature/monster/???  characters lurking around their picturesque town of Alta Dona (not a real place).

Nola’s World books is actually a graphic novel series, so you should definitely pick it up if you like cute illustrations like these:
