In Caroline Hu’s first issue of The Little Scientist, Milli’s application to do research in a magical forest has been approved! As soon as she enters the forest her expectations are challenged as the prestigious professor she signed up to work with is aloof and has little time for her or her scientific inquiries. Luckily she’s teamed up with an equally dejected ice bucket who has offered to help Milli in her research in mysterious organisms known as “strands!”
The comic’s drawings are light and clear, making for an easy read. Caroline deftly uses pops of color in an otherwise monochromatic blue world to make pages come to life! From cover to cover it’s a joy to experience!
