3.5 stars. A lovely book for young readers. The illustrations are incredible. Actually, it’s the colouring that makes them so exceptional. If they had been in black and white, they would still have been charming, but not this admirable, so the colours the colourist used made all the difference her...

It was enjoyable and I loved how each story wrapped up with a happy ending for the 'mysterious' pe...

A really cute graphic novel that reminded me a bit of Harriet the Spy! I loved the illustrations and the three stories that it contained. A great read for middle schoolers! I'm hoping that the author will publish a second volume!

Cici can’t let this mystery go. Eventually she finds out what the man is up to (view spoiler)[painting in animals at an abandone... (hide spoiler)]
