Review: Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling

Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling - Tony Cliff

A fun adventure about a swashbuckling, selfish, adventurous protagonist and her frustrated and ever practical traveling companion. This is the second in a series, but functions fine as a stand alone graphic novel. Appropriate for the upper end of middle grade reader looking for a girl adventurer.

 

There are some class/race issues that could have been delved into deeper, but at least aren't ignored or brushed over. 

 

I may pick up the next one as well.
