When we last checked in on Ariol a few months ago, our effervescent equine friend was busy fighting off imaginary ATM bandits, throwing his sneakers out the window for reasons unknown, and dreaming of his ultimate hero, Thunder Horse. In this second volume of ARIOL, the hit middle grade graphic novel series, the Avenger of the Stars takes center stage (well, at least in Ariol’s preoccupations)!
Whether he’s desperately hunting down the last Thunder Horse sticker for his collection or accidentally buying the wrong comic when his mom rushes for a train, each beautifully illustrated vignette recalls everyone’s youthful hero worship at its peak. And the big finale when Ariol finally finds a missing treasure at his local bookstore will warm every bibliophile’s heart.
