Epic: Attack of the Boggans by Annie Auerbach - OPTIONAL

Auerbach, Annie  Epic: Attack of the Boggans  HarperCollins, 2013.  $3.99  Content: G  PICTURE BOOK 
In the forest are tiny folks, and they fight for either life of the forest or decay.  The Jinn are the good people and their queen picks a special pod that announces the next queen, but the day of the pod picking the evil Boggans, who like to decay the forest, show up and wreak havoc.  The pod that is picked lands in the hands of a human girl, M.K., who has temporarily been transported to the size of the tiny folk.  She works with the Jinn to get the pod to a man who can save the forest. 
The illustartions in this book are taken from the movie.  The storyline is feels like it has been taken from one part of the movie and isn’t a full telling of the story.  If readers enjoyed the movie they will probably enjoy reliving the story through this short book. 
EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
