Zatanna and the House of Secrets
Continuing their line of books for middle-school-aged kids and younger, DC Comics has been reimagining their heroes as kids and putting them into adventures. This continues with Zatanna, as she lives in the House of Secrets with her dad, who is also a magician, a talking rabbit as a familiar, and a key that everyone wants because they believe it can extend one’s life. The villains are obvious, and learning to grow up is the major theme of the book. As Zatanna struggles with a changing culture at school and a friend who wants to be like a grown-up though Zatanna might not be ready for that. Can she come to learn that adults keep secrets for their own reasons, and can Zatanna keep her friends with her at the end?
This book, like the others of its kind, is clearly geared towards a younger audience, as complex questions are not asked and people who have been reading for some time will see the twists coming. But overall it is decent, and most young kids looking to get into graphic novels will find this a good choice.
