Princess Nina by Michel Rodrigue


Princess Nina by Michel Rodrigue

When Nina is assigned a history report, she and Sybil decide that the only proper way to research is to travel through time and see history for themselves! Though they have a great time meeting Ramses II, Leonardo da Vinci, and Napoleon, the evil fairy Amanite is observing from the sidelines. While Amanite schemes to turn their adventure against them, Nina and Sybil have to figure out a way to stop her . . . or risk being lost in time forever.


Papercutz introduces a different kind of fairy you won't find in Never-Never Land. -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL Rodrigue's perky dialogue, peppered with exclamation points, is the perfect fit for Dalena and Razzi's rainbow-hued art and swirls of fairy sparkles. -- NO FLYING, NO TIGHTS In an industry where there are way too many whiny girl geniuses, sullen, mopey children of the night and Mary Sues aplenty, Nina is a likeable kid with a healthy sense of who she is, interests that are obviously gratifying to her (she boxes) and a family life that is refreshingly free of slammed doors and tearful soliloquies about how no one understands. -- SEQUENTIAL TART With a great cliffhanger, fast-paced action scenes and a nemesis in both the real and supernatural world, Sybil the Backpack Fairy builds a rich, inventive world that will definitely appeal to an older middle grade or teen reader. -- SPANDEXLESS Polished and crisp fantasy-meets-reality adventure, with hints of Disney. -- COMIC ATTACK
