Graphic Novel Review: Cucumber Quest

Cucumber Quest: The Doughnut Kingdom (Cucumber Quest, #1)

An evil queen wants to take over the world. The night before Cucumber's supposed to leave for school, a letter arrives from his father asking him to save the world. Cucumber doesn't have the skills nor the desire to save the world. He wants to be left in peace so he can go to school. Unfortunately, his mother decides otherwise. Luckily for him, Almond (his sister) accompanies him. She's far more suited to the task - in fact she saves his life. Can they save the world together?

I enjoyed this book. I loved Almond's take charge attitude and how Cucumber really didn't want to go save the world. He wanted to send his sister instead because she would be better than him. The art work is charming, the banter is cute, and the story is fun.  Plus who doesn't want to visit a place called the Doughnut Kingdom? I'm eager for the next installment.
