Middle Grade is not something I read a lot, I am pretty set on adult fiction. But this looked good. It‘s an anthology, so I will read this in installments. I am reading so many things at the same time right now, it‘s a little silly. Never mind. I will post updates, as I make my way through this…
Tabi po, A Filipino Story, by Iole Marie Rabor
This one is about paying respect to Philippine folkloric spirits and taking that home to another place. Nicely done, very short. The artwork is very simple black and white lines.
Pele and Poliahu, A Tale of Fire and Ice, by DJ Keawekane
Hawaiian story about a sled race down a mountain. That is the superficial part of it anyway, but anything else would give away too much. A little heavy on the explaining.
The Dancing Princess by Mariel Maranan
Philippines again, this time with a Muslim character. Two girls on an excursion, talking options and meeting mysterious figures. The story was a little allover the place.
I received this free e-copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
