Wake up Spring! (Hotel Strange #1) by Katherine and Florian Ferrier –NO

Ferrier, Katherine and Florian  Wake up Spring! (Hotel Strange #1) 40 pgs. Graphic Universe, 2015. $7.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G GRAPHIC NOVEL
Marietta and Kiki run Hotel Strange, but its closed for the winter so they can hibernate. When guests show up for the reservations, the pair discover that its spring, well sort of, the weather is still very wintery. So they go in search of Mr. Spring and have some crazy adventures including meeting Mumblers, Grouchies and Mr. Winter.
This was a cute book with large easy to reader pages and adorable illustrations. It’s a bit odd and convoluted for my taste though. I probably wouldn’t add it to my library since Hotel Strange is a bit creepy, with monsters in the basement, and I think the age that would interested in this read would have a difficult time with some of that kind of stuff. Probably a 1st-2nd grade reading level.
