Words cannot describe how much I love the movie Onward. I watched it during lockdown last year and it has been a huge favourite of mine ever since.
Tales of the Manticore isn’t the story of the film. The book is an origin story about the Manticore, we follow her on quest to the cave of a thousand heroes and meet some amusing characters along the way.
It’s very quick read, which is my reasoning for only rating it 3 stars. I do wish it had been longer, I read it in less than an hour, but at the same time it is aimed at the children’s market. So it is pretty understanble why it is short.
The art work lovely, and the plot is interesting and humorous. If you are a fan of the movie, I recommend it.
