Sanity & Tallulah
I loved the illustrations in this book and how well they went with the story. This book was a wonderful, fun read and I highly recommend it!
I would have devoured this when I was younger -- ok, I still dev ...more
Sanity, who is advanced in her understanding of science, and Tallulah, her best friend, who is not quite as in to science, have created a three headed cat, despite the fact that no animals other than humans are allowed on the space station that they live on.
Here is the three headed cat, below.
The world building is well done. The adults are not stupid to Sanity’s smarts. Everyone has a personality, and background, and although we don’t know all of it yet. It appears as though

(view spoiler)[Dr. Vega, at first, seems appropriately mad at Sanity for breaking literally all the rules to create her three-headed kitten, but the ...more
Sanity's latest science project, which she has been told NOT to do, is a three headed mutant kitten, whom she has been managing to feed by conducting another project to clone meat. When the kitten escapes, things start to go badly wrong. The space station on which she and her friend Tallulah live is imperiled by duct rats who are chewing through piping and drinking coolant, causing massive leaks and failures. Even though the girls have been told not to do any more projects, th ...more
Sanity & Tallulah are a couple of super smart teenage (pre-teen?) girls who live on a space station brimming with science, and who navigate the station and all of its scientific challenges with ease. The plot of this initial installment of hopefully many more to come centers around a three headed pet that one of the creates in the station's science lab and the trouble that ensues from there. It was a delightfu ...more
The first few pages of this were a whoa-what-the-hell kneejerk, because it definitely throws you into the world mid-action. As you read on, the whole story is like that actually, with science, relationships, and histories coming into play without any handholding or introductions. By the time I was at page 15 I was on board, bc it’s kind of nice to be shown and not told for once! An entire world is established over the course of this story, and eventually you’re just u ...more
I love how science-minded they both are, and their ability to get into trouble for good reason. There's some other good minor characters, mostly Tallulah's family. It definitely feels like the ...more
I really adored this read so much. I thought the art style and story was so well done. I loved the fun story but also the focus on science and using science for "harm" and "help". I think the adorable cat in this will keep readers old and young alike turning the page. I loved the various storylines we got in this rather short lead and also loved the role of the parents in this book. I thought the book was so well crafted and ...more
I really liked Princess, Sparkle, Destroyer of Worlds, even though I'm not a cat person.
The story line was okay, and I think kids that are into science and space will really like this book.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

For something so short it managed to really hook me and make me feel attached to the world and characters. I liked the plot a lot with the 3-headed kitten and all! Would love to see this become a series and I'll definitely make it one of my main kids graphic novels recommendations
A good all-ages comic. Can't wait to see the final version and have it in the library. And I'm looking forward to more of these adventures.
Oh and did I mention: three-headed kitten and girls doing science in space?
If this doesn't already sound like a book you want to read, then we can't ever hang out.
Who says graphic novels aren't really reading!? I think this one will surely please my science fiction/girl power fans (and teachers too) in grades 4-5. So glad to see there is a sequel in the works.
