DRC Review: Zatanna & the House of Secrets by Matthew Cody and Yoshi Yoshitani (illustrator)

In our house of secrets, minutes can seem like hours, hours like days.

Cute is one word to describe this.
Heartbreakingly cute in both words and artwork.
Zatanna lives in a house that I would DIE for. Magical and made of dreams, she resides with her father and a cute bunny named Pocus.

Zatanna knows her home life isn’t normal and that people in the neighborhood talk about her house which is dubbed the House of Secrets. It has never bothered her until she becomes excluded from cool events like dances after school.

Uhh, that probably was a good thing however. When Zatanna is invited to one that’s when she encounters the son of a witch at said party.

That’s when the secrets of the house are revealed.

This book surprised me. I went in expecting just your normal YA graphic novel but came out with something completely different and for that I’m happy. Zatanna is adorable and Pocus as a bunny sidekick was great.

The magical aspect was simple and great and the house was interesting and full of surprises. I felt that some of the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more but that is my only gripe honestly.

The artwork is gorgeous and so pleasant to look at. The colors draw you in immediately and you just want the story to go on and on.

I wish this was a series honestly rather than a one shot. That’s how much I enjoyed this.

Thanks very much to Edelweiss AND Netgalley for this copy of my ARC. All opinions are my own.
