Read full description of the books:
Meet Pamela, a tarot card reader who helps supernatural beings living in the human world. She'll help any one whether they're a love-stricken cat, a vampire spending eternal life running from his one true love, an unattractive waitress looking for the man of her dreams, or even a magician who creates a humanoid doll to serve the woman he loves. Although she is good-natured, there is a deep dark secret that she must deal with before she can move on to the next life.
- From the creator of Les Bijoux.
Park (Les Bijoux) presents a new series that is part fantasy, part horror and entirely intriguing. Pamela reads fortunes at the Tarot Café, helping a series of supernatural beings process lost loves, karmic traps and other mysteries. Her cafe attracts a vampire who meets-and betrays-his one true love over and over again; a puppet master whose greatest creation has fallen in love with him; a cat who changes into a person for love of his mistress; and a fairy trapped in the body of a young girl. The volume combines clear artwork with amusing dialogue and heartfelt situations; each chapter comes off as a fairy tale or fable, and is pleasingly imaginative as such. But it's difficult to engage with the book at times, because Pamela's own character is such a mystery. Her conversations with her clients and others in the lulls between stories are intriguing and deserve to be extended in upcoming volumes. Park's artwork is stellar, whether she is using b&w contrast to illuminate the horror of a vampire's appearance or crafting scenes that represent a story's emotional center. Already a bestseller in Korea, this series should be popular in the U.S. as well, particularly among tween girls, for its creativity and fantastic elements.
Grade 9 Up-This book consists of four episodes, the last of which is less compelling than the first three. Tarot-card reader Pamela has the ability to read supernatural beings, and each segment tells of a problem that the tarot reading helps to solve. In the first, a wish-fulfilling cat must make the ultimate choice for love. Next, a vampire needs help coming to terms with his past. A fairy has to help a human in order to lift a curse in the third, and, in the last, an alchemist discovers true feelings where he least expects them. Each episode is a story in itself, but the final episode doesn't come to a satisfying conclusion. The black-and-white manga-style illustrations are clear and expressive and fully complement the text, and the tarot cards are interestingly drawn. As each one is turned over, its meaning is explained. The stories are mostly about adults, but they will appeal to older teens as they move quickly and are engrossing.
