Mara, the boy with unique powers, rescues the special Chanva bird, and is set on the trail of the holder of a thousand spells, the elusive Chief Magician. When Mara journeys to the sky kingdom of the North, with his cheeky talking cows and his fearless new friend, Shiroi, everything is put to the test – from his fear of flying to his cooking skills! As the young magician goes from adventure to misadventure, carrying out dangerous tasks and meeting strange challenges, he discovers that learning to smoke meat is just as useful as knowing how to cast a spell. Otherworldly hills and valleys, a quiet but strong presence throughout, are brought to life by striking coloured pencil art. The classic quest narrative gets a new spin! A gripping graphic novel where magic meets mystery, inspired by a Tangkhul Naga folktale.

Dynamic and original

Mara… moves along at a brisk pace, and is easily read in a single sitting. The panels in which the illustrations are set are played with in innovative ways, making the first half of the book very dynamic – tight insets, artwork occasionally seeping to the corners of the page, and lovingly depicting the region’s hilly terrain. The book is driven almost entirely by dialogue, and I enjoyed the way subtle shades to a character are revealed entirely through the banter between its human and magical characters. Saffron Tree
