My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The students play a game of door tag, which takes them hopping across dimensions until Emily ends up in Weirdworld, where she meets Catbeast, a cute little creature who is most certainly a wizard in disguise.

This is fun, whimsical, beautiful fun. Humberto Ramos is at his best here, crafting weird and wonderful new worlds. Skottie Young has created a cast of charming characters and seems to be weaving a tale full of mystery. My only complain is that we haven’t really got to know the cast too well yet, but that will come in time, I hope.

As this book is set in a magic school, comparisons to Harry potter are inevitable, but Harry Potter drew on a tradition of boarding school and, indeed, magical school literature that has a long heritage that this book simply adds to.
