This edition includes volumes 1-2 of Cici’s story.
I adore the beautiful illustrations with soft colors and clean lines. Every page is gorgeous, and I read it slowly so that I could enjoy each panel.
Cici’s story is imaginative and whimsical. The plot is interesting and charming, with lots of varied characters. It’s such a sweet story of friendship, reclaiming the past, and learning to trust.
I love that Cici is initially intrigued by the mystery, but then she truly wants to help people and make their lives better. She has a generous heart, but her actions are sometimes misplaced. She has such great character development!
