**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

 “…the series emphasizes the same values of inclusion, friendship, and teamwork that infuse the Lumberjanes comics.”
 

— Sally Lodge

"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

"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 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
