Lumberjanes: The Moon Is Up

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power!. You can read my review of this novel [here].

Lumberjanes: The Moon is Up was written by Mariko Tamaki and first published in 2018. It follows on directly from where the first novel of the series – Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power! (2017) – left off, as the girls encounter a mysterious creature in the forest. The series is a spin-off of the award winning Lumberjanes comic and is aimed at middle grade readers.

April, Mal, Molly, Ripley and Jo are about to take part in the camp’s first ever Galaxy Wars. The series of events are designed to test each cabin’s intelligence and teamwork as they battle win a unique badge and a spot in the Lumberjanes hall of fame. However, they will have their work cut out for them. Their rivals in Zodiac cabin also have their heart set on the prize and are determined to win.

However, one of the Roanoke scouts does not have her heart in the game. Jo has recently received a letter that invites her to take part in a special research programme, but if she accepts she will have to leave the camp. The experience would be life-changing, but she’s not sure how she can break the subject of leaving with her BFF, April.

The letter isn’t the only thing that is troubling Jo. She still isn’t sure whether or not she dreamed seeing an odd spacecraft land in the woods. Things soon start to get weird around the camp as their copious supplies of cheese begin to mysteriously disappear. It’s not long before the Lumberjanes find the culprit but discover that she has problems of her own. Will the Lumberjanes help their new friend and win the contest, and is this the last adventure that they will have together?
