Colorful, funny, and fast-paced, this graphic novel spin-off from the popular gaming website will likely appeal to both hard-core fans and newcomers. MYSTERY OF THE MAP: POPTROPICA, BOOK 1 is a quick and easy read, with at least one joke or sight gag per page. The characters and their motivations are simple, but Oliver, Mya, and Jorge have plenty of personality, thanks to their jelly-bean faces and bubble eyes. Author Jack Chabert devises intriguing situations, and illustrator Kory Merritt choreographs the action with wit and flair. The story ends with lots of questions unanswered, leaving readers ready for further adventures.
