With its can-do heroine, witty dialogue and romantic ending, this graphic novel has something for nearly everybody.
The dialogue is witty, the story is an enticing departure from the original, and the illustrations are magically fun and expressive.
With such a successful debut, one hopes to see more graphic novels from this trio.
Outrageously funny!
