The Lagoon by Lilli Carre

Lagoon book cover

Four out of five stars. A haunting, beautiful, and short graphic novel about a mysterious creature that sings a tune that fascinates and lures people to it. The artwork echoes the gothic mood she sets with the story. I was mesmerized by the artwork and stopped many times to appreciate the distinct feel of it. The story is clever, unexpected, and whimsical. This book is appropriate for older teens as well as adults.
