Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Hilarious romp through knight & hero cliches being turned on their heads. The story is top-notch. I love the humor, and the playful joking between ’evil villian’ and sidekick. The writing is so good that it carries the good, but not spectacular drawing.

The story is about a ’evil villian’, who is not actually that bad, and his sidekick that latches onto him. The sidekick is a strong, shapeshifting girl, that has major attitude. The is fearless in fighting the good guys, who actually turn out to be not all that good.

I am slowly collecting books like this that will be be able to be enjoyed by my daughter someday. I like stories with strong female characters that aren’t just ‘pretty dolls’ waiting to be rescued by the strong men.
