Review

Sandy loves drawing - she'd far rather draw and imagine than listen to Sister Dolores drone on about maths in class. And when she meets the otherworldly Morfie in the playground, who admires her drawings, she's happy to have found a friend. But as time goes on, Sandy realises that Morfie is not a normal girl, and she wants Sandy for her own dark purposes. Luckily, Sandy is able to outwit the strange girl using the very thing she once found so dull.

A remarkable, haunting and beautiful graphic novel for younger readers, Nightlights is a magical fable about creativity and believing in yourself. With a 'Studio Ghibli' feel and some sumptuous artwork, this is a wonderful read and a visual treat.
