The Lost PathAmazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: The Lost Path

Author/Artist: Amélie Fléchais
Upcoming Release Date: March 28, 2018

Synopsis: Three young boys set off from Camp Happiness, map in hand, determined to be the first to find the treasure before anyone else. But the shortcut they take leads to something far more spectacular and sinister! All manner of magical beasties live in these woods, and the kids find themselves caught between warring Forest Spirits. Will the three boys find their way out of trouble? Get your map and ready, set, go! Amélie Fléchais's incredible artwork combines the best of French illustration with manga influences. A spooky new fairytale, for fans of Over the Garden Wall. 


Review: I really enjoyed 
Amélie Fléchais's Little Red Wolf and was excited to see this book translated as well. The artwork in this book is absolutely beautiful. The characters are so different and absolutely quirky. The scenery has such detail. But, I was confused throughout this whole book. 

It may be that the story just did not make it through the translation process, but I was unsure what exactly was happening for pretty much the whole book. I liked the different perspectives added, but was confused by the robots. 

I give this graphic novel a 3/5. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous. The story reminded me of Over the Garden Wall. It's quirky and it confused me.
