children's graphic fantasy/adventure (2nd/3rd grade and up?)
colorful and humorous adventures of Cucumber, a nerdy bunny-person who just wants to go to Magic School, and his little sister Almond, who craves danger and adventure. Adapted from the webcomic. ( )

Cucumber Quest is a middle-grade humorous fantasy and a quest story. It features a big brother that everyone is trying to force into a chosen-one "Legendary Hero" role when all he wants to do is go to school and study magic. He finds himself partnered with a little sister who lives and longs for an adventure. I love that. The art is also adorable.

However, I find the messages in it, as well as the humor, to have all the subtlety of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. That is to say, it is something "like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick." Additionally, the book simply has far more to offer in terms of cuteness than substance. Furthermore, the one character that wasn't white plays a bit role that's more like a plot point than a character and is deceitful to boot.

All in all, I won't be rushing to put this in anyone's hands. ( )

The kingdom of Dreamside is in trouble, with Cordelia turning the king into stone and installing herself as queen. Even worse, she plans to resurrect the country's most heinous enemy, The Nightmare Knight. In order to defeat The Nightmare Knight, Cucumber's imprisoned father tells him to go a heroic quest to find a legendary sword that will defeat the knight. But Cucumber would much rather just be studying magic at school as planned....

This book is a short and quirky adventure story; I can definitely see it appealing to elementary-aged children, even if it wasn't particularly my cup of tea. (Sometimes the vibe reminded me of Over the Garden Wall, although I preferred that series to this one.) It is humorous at times, in addition to being packed with action and intrigue. The illustrations are lively and expressive, although I find it a bit odd personally the characters are basically anthropomorphized rabbits. The author clearly put a lot of work into building this fantasy world though, as is evident by the pages of backmatter providing maps, character cards, history, fun facts, etc. The book does end on cliffhanger so reading the next volume is clearly necessary to completing the story (or getting further along in it at any rate).

My one real quibble with the book is the way gender is presented. It's nice to see how Cucumber is more of a thinker while his younger sister Almond is the one training to be a knight. However, titling the book "Cucumber Quest" still centers the male character as protagonist, even if the siblings almost always share the action on every page. There's also references to grown women as "girls" and a character, who albeit is a villainous characters, constantly referring to himself as the "manliest." It just seemed like a bit more than was necessary. ( )

A boy is tasked with becoming a hero and defeating a great evil that threatens his world. Both he and his sister would prefer she do it, though. A gorgeously-drawn send-up of classic role-playing game conventions. ( )
