What would you do if your mute sister spoke for the first time and asked you to buy some seeds at the flea market? Would you trade your mom's car for them? Well, that's just what Jack did. After getting in so much trouble Jack helps his sister, Maddy, build a garden and plant the seeds. When the garden starts to grow, very strange things begin to happen. Plants come to life and begin to attack, strange peppers seem to give some kind of superpowers, pumpkins and onions go wild, and a dragon might even make an appearance. Jack makes a new friend and Lilly is definitely up for the battle. But what happens when Maddy plants the most dangerous pack of seeds in the garden? A monster grows and takes Maddy away. Will Jack and Lilly be able to save her? This is book 1 of the Mighty Jack series and a must read!
I cannot keep graphic novels on the shelves and this one will not be an exception!
