In this volume, Mal asks Ripley to help her get over her always being scared of the monsters they encounter. But when Mal accidentally stumbles through a portal to the the Land of Lost Things, it’s up to the rest of the Roankoke’s to save her.
Portals to other dimensions are always fun. This one is a mash up of things from different eras, like Grecian temples and dinosaurs. I laughed out loud when April thought a rotary phone was ancient. It also made me groan of course since kids today really do think that.
This one was about overcoming your fears and being brave. Like the characters, everyone is brave in a different way, which is a great lesson to learn. There is no one way to show bravery.
I give this one Three and a Half Lightsabers.
