Nightlights is a graphic novel about a little girl named Sandy who loves to draw- any time, anywhere. She draws at home and at school. One day, she meets a new girl at school: Morfie. Morfie loves Sandy's drawings, maybe a bit more than is healthy or normal, and things take a bit of a different turn.
This is a great story- both the chicks enjoyed it, the little chick for the art work and the bigger chick for the story- in their words "I love it!". I love the artwork, which reflects Alvarez' childhood in Bogotá Colombia, as well as the story, which shows that not all friendships are what they seem, and that when it comes to imagination, we don't need anyone else's praise to imagine and create wonderful things.
I recommend Nightlights for chicks who like graphic novels, who are artistic, or who enjoy picture books. It is suitable for a wide range of ages, from early readers and up.
