Graphic Novel Spotlight: Hotel Strange

Hotel Strange by Katherine and Florian Ferrier

This is a quirky series to be sure, as one might gather from the covers. Characters cover a wide range of types, both in personality and in species. The art style is relatively flat, reminiscent of your standard kids' cartoon. The plot can be a little hard to follow at times as there are events and characters referenced with little to no explanation. For pure entertainment, this is a solid choice for elementary kids. Older readers may recognize some European and manga influence both in art and storytelling.
