Description

Welcome to Miss Quinzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types. The five scouts of Roanoke cabin-Jo, April, Molly, Mal, and Ripley-love their summers at camp. They get to hang out with their best friends, earn Lumberjane scout badges, annoy their no-nonsense counselor Jen . . . and go on supernatural adventures. That last one? A pretty normal occurrence at Miss Quinzella's, where the woods contain endless mysteries. Today is no exception. When thrill-seeking Molly leads the girls on a hike up the TALLEST mountain they've ever seen, things don't go quite as planned. For one, they didn't expect to trespass into the lands of the ancient Cloud People, and did anyone happen to read those ominous signs some unknown person posted at the bottom of the mountain? Also, unicorns. This hilarious, rollicking adventure series brings the beloved Lumberjanes characters into a novel format with brand-new adventures.

Review quote

"Fans familiar with the comic series will find all five of the girls fully presented here . . . readers of the series will still want to accompany the girls on another adventure, and newbies to the quintet's hijinks may find this an appealing invitation to the comics."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Full of puns, adventure, magical creatures, and girl power aplenty, this novel offers middle-grade readers a new way to enjoy Lumberjanes . . . Tamaki expertly captures the tone of the series, in both its manic plots and its narrative style, and she adds in some meaningful backstory and conflict."--Booklist "The well-developed characters portray strong female role models who value friendship. The characters exhibit equality and acceptance between girls of different ethnicities and sexual orientation in a subtle manner. This fast-paced novel seamlessly mixes fantasy, adventure, and just plain fun!"--School Library Connection **STARRED REVIEW**
"Without missing a beat, this novelization has successfully sustained the fun, feminist feel and lively vernacular of the beloved graphic-novel series, a notable feat...With its just-right blend of giggleworthy jokes, LGBTQ-positive characters, and affirmative emphasis on friendship, this middle-grade charmer can make even the coldest, bleakest day feel like a sunny day at summer camp." --Kirkus "Mariko Tamaki's novelization brings the Lumberjanes from comic books to fiction in Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power! Enhanced with fantastic illustrations by Brooke Allen, one of the creators of the Lumberjanes comics, Unicorn Power is a hilarious and thoughtfully modern take on the classic summer camp adventure that is destined to delight."--Shelf Awareness ..".the series emphasizes the same values of inclusion, friendship, and teamwork that infuse the Lumberjanes comics."
--Sally Lodge "Publishers Weekly "
