Amazon “Book Depository


I am so excited for this Pied Piper retelling! I love Jay Asher’s books, and I have very high hopes for this one. I am interested in Piper’s secret dark side and the mystery that I’m sure will surround his character. This is also a graphic novel, which I don’t read too often, so this is a bit out of my comfort zone in terms of style. I can’t wait for this book to come out this fall, and I’m sure that I will be impressed.

    Oh my gosh. I’ve seriously ALWAYS wanted to read a Pied Piper retelling. I don’t know why I’m so obsessed with the Pied Piper story but ahhhh so excited for this book now. 😀

    I keep hearing people say YOU HAVE TO TRY GRAPHIC NOVELS. I’ve been told a million times to give them a try. It is WAY outside of my comfort zone, but if I were to consider trying one out, this one would be it, I think!
