5 out of 5 stars

Wisteria is a little sprite who is new to the area. The sprites live in a neighborhood where the humans do all the gardening, so the ancient art of using magic to help the plants grow has been completely lost. Wisteria begins to experiment with a budding power, and finds that she can make a difference in one small garden.

This graphic novel is so adorable! All the little sprites are so beautiful and sweet. I loved the delicate art style and the pastel colors. Each panel is blossoming with exquisite little details in the background of each scene, and strong emotions in the body language and facial expressions of the characters. It just carries you away to another world!

The plot is simple and straight-forward, as Wisteria discovers her new abilities and begins to explore what that means for the sprite society and how it might affect the humans around them. She is hesitant at first, but learns more and more, and gains some confidence. There’s not much going on in the plot, but it’s very cute and gentle.

I loved the designs for all the different sprites! They are all so different and fun!

This whole book is such a delight!
