About the Book

Aster is charming, resourceful, and fun." - Dana Simpson, author of Phoebe and Her Unicorn

Magic turned Aster's life upside-down -- and it's not over! Get ready for more family, more fun, and even more magic in this graphic novel adventure.

Moving to the middle of nowhere has been less of a disaster than Aster expected. Her mom's science experiments are actually pretty cool; her dad's cooking has gotten much better; her new dog is possibly the best canine companion anyone could ask for.

And she's gotten to save the day -- and her family -- and the whole valley she lives in -- from various magical calamities in what even she has to admit were extremely fun adventures. So now she can have a break, right?

Guess what?

Oh no; things get even more interesting.

“In this fitting sequel with the promise of more adventures in the future, Pico and Karensac remain a dream team at crafting hilarious, heartwarming hijinks.” —The Bulletin, starred review

"The name of the game here is adventure, and Pico doesn’t let off the gas, except to pump the brakes for well-timed bits of absurdist humor. Meanwhile, Karensac adeptly balances goofy charm with breakneck action, this time bringing a number of quirky, fantastical settings to colorful life. Epic, funny, and exciting." —Booklist
