Mini reviews: March reads

Yesterday, I posted my March reviews and I thought I’d post my reviews (since I only read 4 books last month).


Agents of S.U.I.T. – John Patrick Green

Cilantro the Chameleon finally gets what she’s been waiting for: a field assignment. Only…it’s literally out in the middle of a field, and her orders are so vague, she can hardly tell what she’s supposed to be investigating. But as she begins to uncover a sheep-led worker’s rights revolt and an alien invasion conspiracy—not to mention a spooky haunting at the abandoned S.U.I.T. field outpost—Cilantro steps into her own V.E.S.T. as a valued member of the team.

I’m a massive fan of Investigators, so when I came across this, I was BLOODY OVER THE MOON. This made me cackle so much. Cilantro comes up against sheep, naps, aliens, some vague instructions and crop circles. Very excited for book 2 (as well as more Investigators!!). The ending made me very curious indeed! Lovely to see Mango and Brash!

The Nowhere Thief – Alice M Ross

Twelve-year-old Elsbeth has an extraordinary power: she can travel to parallel worlds and bring objects back with her. But as freak weather events become more frequent and a strange boy, Idris, starts to turn up everywhere she travels, she has to ask herself: does her gift come with a price?

I thoroughly enjoyed this world-jumping, object-stealing, family-finding adventure! I thought the characters were great and this is full of inspiration for stories and writing and talking! I don’t think I’d make a good world jumper though. I think my kids will love this! Looking for something filled with adventures, friends, family and intrigue? This could be it!

Agent Moose 3: Operation Owl – Mo O’Hara and Jess Bradley

Agent Moose and Owlfred are back and better than ever! Strange flash floods are making waves all over the Big Forest! When Madame HQ is nabbed right out of a very wet Woodland HQ, Agent Moose and Owlfred must wade through clues to get her back and stop the mystery criminal making a big splash in Big Forest! Can they find this fiendish villain before Big Forest floats away?

It’s a good job Agent Moose is good with disguises, otherwise his plans would never go as planned! These graphic novels are cute and fun stories! I know some children in school who’ll be thrilled to have this! Love the bold illustrations in this!

Welcome to St. Hell: My Trans Teen Misadventure – Lewis Hancox

Lewis has a few things to say to his younger teen self. He knows she hates her body. He knows she’s confused about who to snog. He knows she’s really a he and will ultimately realize this… but she’s going to go through a whole lot of mess (some of it funny, some of it not funny at all) to get to that point. Lewis is trying to tell her this… but she’s refusing to listen.

Really enjoyed this. This story of a trans teen’s journey through self-identity and transitioning was eye-opening. I really enjoyed the insertion of adult Lewis into the teen timeline. I read this in like an hour.


And that’s it for today! I’ve had a productive graphic novel reading year so far, so I’m sure I’ll be back with some more graphic novel mini reviews in the next week or so! I have loads of reviews to catch up on! I would love some recommendations though…

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you have any recommendations for graphic novels for me to buy that would work for my Y6s, I’d love to hear them!
