Disney Princess Ariel And The Sea Wolf HC – Dark Horse continues their series of Disney Princess graphic novels for young readers. While acting out a grand adventure for her sisters, Ariel’s grand gestures cause her sister to lose her bracelet in a deep cave where a dangerous, carnivorous creature is said to live. Ariel’s curiosity and sense of responsibility sends her into the cave. What starts out as a quest to find the bracelet becomes a quest for the truth and trust, because sometimes what you hear isn’t what you should believe…and sometimes, it is. This heartwarming story of friendship show the importance of openness and acceptance in a world where misunderstandings happen and rumors spread. This is a must for young reader graphic novels collections.

Nico Bravo, along with sphynx Lula and unicorn Buck are the staff of Vulcan’s Celestial Shop, where you can find all the magical merchandise you need to set any problem right. But the latest customer threatens to turn their world upside down. Eowulf is the pint-size descendant of the monster slayer Beowulf. Determined to carry on the family business, he plans to slay Cerberus, the terrifying, three-headed hound of Hades. However, as the guardian to the entrance to the Underworld, Cerberus is the only thing preventing the hordes of the dead from entering the land of the living. It’s up to Nico and his friends to stop Eowulf before he unleashes a zombie apocalypse! Middle grade readers will love the adventure and humor this graphic novel offers.
