A story about Sandy, a little girl who loves to draw. She sees creatures, she dreams them, she draws them. Reality and fantasy intermingle. She often sees things no one else sees, including Morfie, a ghost who is increasingly controlling, menacing. It appears to be a picturebook, but is actually...

Beautiful vibrant illustrations in this children's graphic story / comic. I picked this up as part of a reading challenge, one task of which was to read an "all ages comic". It is nice that the author is from Bogota, Colombia (as I have never read a children's book from there) and apparently this...

Well done, if a bit slight. It seemed odd that Morfie switched so immediately to being obviously evil and threatening -- why bother pretending for that first day to be a friend? And since she had made friends, why not keep pretending and get the art without coercion? I dunno, I wanted it to drag...

This is was the most beautiful graphic novel I've ever read! It's like a Pixar short on paper - Sandy, the main character, is adorable, the colours are so vibrant and the story is simple yet deep. I hope there's a second volume!

Hmmm...what an oxymoron of a book this is. It is a picture book that is a set up like a graphic novel. It is a children's book that is actually quite sinister and scary. It is vivid/vibrant/bright/beautiful and dark/creepy/scary/confusing. I understand why my ten-year-old gravitated toward this e...

THIS WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ARTWORK I'VE EVER SEEN. Everything about Nightlights was gorgeous. I could look at each page for an hour, completely mesmerised. It's such an adorable story about art and praise and how when you start to let praise feed your passion, the passion dies and it was just so...

Lorena Alvarez has produced a vibrant, yet sinister dreamscape of a graphic novel and one which resonates so much with the constrictive nature of a prescribed education and the apathy of our hand-held virtual lives. This is a beautiful and important story which celebrates imagination and creative...

This was absolutely gorgeous!! The illustrations are breathtaking. I just wish there were a couple more pages to add a little more to the story.

if i was rating this for the illustrations and colors alone, it would be a 5 star rating all the way. i LOVED how gorgeous and saturated the colors were and how beautiful the pictures were. but the story itself was a little...underdeveloped? underexplained? it was like a build up to nothing. and...
