Phoebe and Marigold are back for another adventure. This time their town is under attack magical attack. Together with her friend Max, her frenemy, Dakota, and a group of goblins they’ve got to get to the bottom of the mystery that’s plaguing the town.
This is the first original Phoebe and Her Unicorn graphic novel. It tells a contained story about a mysterious case in Phoebe’s hometown that she solves with the help of her magic friends. It is absolutely the best story in the Phoebe series yet.
While this graphic novel doesn’t have all the humor of the previous ones, I think the story telling and development in this story was really great. I liked that we got to see more Max and that Dakota has really grown more – I think it was inevitable and great that Dakota and Phoebe have sort of become friends through this story.
I think it was really cute that Max got a magical friend by the end of this story too, as I’m really enjoying the way that Simpson is expanding the magical universe of the Phoebe series.
I highly recommend this book. Check out the entire series!!
