Description


Tanabata Matsuri, the Star Festival, celebrates a popular folktale: The Emperor of the Heavens separates his daughter, Orihime, from her love, Hikoboshi, all year--but on this day the two stars finally reunite, crossing a bridge over the Milky Way. For Keiko, her mama, and her grandmother, Tanabata is about making tanzaku wishes, taking in the colorful decorations, and eating delicious food like nagashi somen and shaved ice. But when Obaasan gets lost in the crowd, Keiko and Mama must make their own bridge to find her again--and see if their tanzaku comes true.

Oh my gosh, here's the next comic series to get you hooked! Lumberjanes brings you to an absolutely rad summer camp for “hard-core lady-types”, where you meet a cast of characters who are adventurous, loud, happy, kind, and absolutely ready for anything they might encounter at this wild camp. There are many volumes of this wonderful story, starting us right off with these girls’ adventures solving the mysteries surrounding the “Holy Kitten”. And while we’re along for the ride, we end up totally falling in love with all these awesome characters and their dynamics and friendships. Not to mention, the art is full of energy and vibrancy to match their wild adventures! Lumberjanes is always such fun!
