The Girl of Ink and Stars Reviews
I picked up The Girl of Ink and Stars after it won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. I don't normally read middle grade fantasy, but The Girl of Ink and Stars is an enchanting, magical adventure and is stunningly written (plus the book itself is pretty, too!).
The Girl of Ink & Stars follows Isabelle Riosse – a cartographer's daughter – as she goes on a treacherous journey to rescue her best friend, Lupe. Lupe has disappeared into the island's Forgotten Territories and because of her fat ...more

Dočteno, knihu jsem zhltala za dva večery a nemohla jsem se od ní odtrhnout. Já prostě miluju Middle-grade dobrodružství, tady navíc byl místní folklór, mytologie, trochu nedpřirozeno, ty španělská jména, ostrov, z velké části neprobádaný. Prostě kouzelná knížečka s kouzelným, napínavým, nenáročným samozřejmě, příběhem.
Přemýšlím, co způsobilo, že se to tolik z vás nelíbilo. Trochu hádám, že fakt, že tam nebyla žádná YA romance a že by český překlad? Já YA fantasy/romanci fakt nepotřebuji a knih ...more
Mulan, Hercules, and Moana all rolled into one! It was so fantastic and beautifully written with lots of folklore that I need as a separate book. Adventurous middle grade is the best.
It's important to state that this is a wonderful book for both boys and girls. Some may think that a book with the silhouette of a girl of the front cover could be calling to a certain audience but there are plenty of boys on front covers and girls pick 'em up: and the same should and could be said here.
Something strange has happened the world which Isabella inhabits. It is a place full of dark secrets and a past shrouded with myths flavoured with the essence of truth. One myth, the story of Ar ...more
Review by Cerys - Year 8
The Girl of Ink and Stars is a beautiful story of Isabella, the cartographer’s daughter, and her journey when her best friend, Lupe goes missing outside the city’s walls, which residents of the city are never allowed to leave, but on her journey through the depths of Joya, (the island) will she discover that her destiny is at hand. Mysteries and legends intertwine in this breath-taking, beautiful read, of friendship, myths and magic.
My favourite character is Isabella, for ...more
I really loved this book and wish I had read it as a child! It was so fun and imaginative and emotional but not emotionally manipulative. Highly recommended for readers of all ages who love a good adventure story.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Chicken House UK for the copy.
Everything about this book is beautiful: the cover, the title, the prose, the world it speaks of, and the brave characters featured in it. It tells a thoughtful tale of friendship and loyalty, of love and family, and of courageous dreams. The Girl of Ink and Stars is one of the few middle-grade fantasies that I think adults will enjoy. It has that timeless quality into it that fairy tales hav ...more
