Laika isnít just your typical graphic novel, though. Most graphic
novels are usually fictional and cartoon-like. This book tells about
something that happened in real life instead and has a more serious feel to
it, which may make it less appealing to some readers. The book isnít
necessarily there just for entertainment; itís there for teaching you about

anyone age eleven and up. I would recommend it to someone who is a die-hard
graphic novel lover.
I give Laika 4 stars.
