"Mooncakes is spellbinding. It had everything I love in a story--magic that felt inventive, characters that became my friends, and a romance that felt truly authentic. It was one of those books that I was sad to see end. Luckily, I can always reread." --Tillie Walden, creator of Spinning and On a Sunbeam "Mooncakes transported me to a gorgeous magical realm that I never want to leave, and introduced me to lovable characters who stuck with me long after I finished reading. This graphic novel is the joyful fantasy romance we all need right now, and it might just restore your faith in magic." --Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky "Mooncakes is heartwarming, playful and absolutely magical! A story about love and family, with a kind and powerful core that radiates through the vibrant cast of characters."  --Katie O'Neill, author of The Tea Dragon Society and Princess Princess Ever After A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft. Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers' bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.    One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.    Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.… (lisätietoja)

I can’t even begin to describe how cute and wonderful this book was! I loved it to bits! Thank you so much, DJL! ( )

This was adorable. Seriously, you take a look at that cover and you'll get exactly what you expect. A queer witch and werewolf who were friends as kids are reunited as young adults to defeat a few bad guys and fall (back) in love. Both love interests are Asian and queer. Nova is a Hard of Hearing witch living with her two grandmas following the death of her parents. (Older queer women FTW!) Tam is a non-binary werewolf who has run away from an abusive situation only to end up in a magical forest fighting a demon horse.

Everything about this book is queer. The only time anything is even mentioned is when the grandmas use the wrong pronoun for Tam (having not seen them in nearly a decade) and are immediately corrected. Then they use the correct pronouns and it's not a thing at all. There is kissing. There is an old couple who banter and bicker in such a realistic way.

There are adorable magical woodland creatures and a scary demon from *mystery.* Without spoiling things, there's a complicated magical reason why Tam and Nova have to work together to defeat the demon and other bad forces in town. There's a scene where Nova's family gathers for a holiday and her parents join in as ghosts and it's full of food, but also very moving. And Nova's best friend, Tat, is a magic skeptic but she still helps out. Because that's what friends do.

This is a longer graphic novel, coming in at 250 lovingly illustrated pages, so it gives enough time to develop the characters and the plot. There's quite a bit of foreshadowing but it's still surprising in the end, which is fast paced and full of magic and betrayal. And it has a Happily Ever After!

My only complaint is that one of the main characters is named Tam and another is Tat. If the characters weren't on the page, I had a hard time remembering who was who. Seriously, that's my only complaint, so consider this a highly recommended book.



Suzanne received an early digital (partially uncolored) copy of this book for review from the publisher.

Cute and sweet. I guess it's not quite finished yet -the coloring stop 3/4ths of the way through. ( )

Mooncakes is about Nova Huang, a teen witch working at her grandmother's bookshop helping to loan out spell books and investigating anything supernatural in and around their town. One night she goes into the woods to investigate sightings of a white wolf. She ends up running into someone she least expects: Tam Lang, a werewolf and her childhood crush! After battling a horse demon, the duo go back to Nova's grandmother's for help. As their feelings are rekindled, Nova and Tam use witchcraft, magic, occult rituals, and family in their journey of self-discovery.

I never knew I needed a graphic novel where one of the main characters is a queer, hard-of-hearing witch who has a relationship with a nonbinary werewolf, but along came Mooncakes and I couldn't be more happy. I absolutely loved everything about this book - the representation; both main characters are Chinese-American, the amount of LGBTQ characters, the references to Nova's hearing aids! Tam uses they/them pronouns and as soon as one of Nova's grandma's learns about it, she apologizes, corrects herself, and then uses them. Everything about this novel is precious, wholesome, and delightful.

The artwork in the graphic novel was clear and amazing. The color scheme of everything made me crave fall. I could feel the cool breeze through the panels and everyone's outfits always looked so cozy!

Mooncakes is an adorable graphic novel, filled with a sprinkle of magic, great representation, and cute art. It won't disappoint! ( )
