The graphic novels are wonderful & I love them. This novel attempts to continue to tell stories about the Lumberjanes in the same whimsical manner, but it just falls a bit flat. Instead of playful, it comes across a bit more juvenile. It just didn't capture my interest like the graphic novels. I think kids would enjoy these, but I think I'll skip the others in this series.

The Lumberjanes discover a herd of unicorns grazing next to a gigantic mountain, the top of which cannot be seen. April is adamant about conquering it so she can earn a badge, but she & the rest of the Lumberjanes neglect to read the weathered signs that warn of danger. The mountain disappears, stranding the group above the clouds.

I did love this quote:
"...Ripley, shooting up into the air and pointing over April's shoulder, screamed probably one of the top ten words a person can possibly scream.

UNICORN!!!!"

This was a fun, quick read that builds a world I would very much like to spend some more time with. The number of characters seems a little overwhelming at first, but they quickly become identifiable. The premise is charming and the goofs are good. There are good lessons to be told here and they are delivered with grace and wit. Also the names of the badges are a blast.

Smelly unicorns were a delight, and I really loved all the silly puns. A sweet story with lots of great friendship moments, and Tamaki did a great job of capturing the graphic novel characters' personalities.
