The Double Blog Dare Tour

Alison Dare, Little Miss Adventures and Alison Dare, The Heart of the Maiden by J.Torres and Jason Bone

Source: Tundra Books for blog tour

Grade: 3.5 stars out of 5

The Adventures of Alison Dare follows an unstoppable (a.k.a stubborn) girl named Alison Dare. She's always curious, and whenever bored, creates a new adventure for she and her friends, whether they want to or not. However, sometimes curiosity kills the cat (or is that how the saying goes?) and Alison gets in more trouble than she bargained for. Though with a renowned archaeologist mother, a superhero father, and an international superspy uncle, she should be used to it.

There are actually a couple stories in one graphic novel. Sometimes it halts one story to begin another one then goes back to the original first story to build suspense (it works). The story lines are simple and easy to follow even for a first time reader of Alison Dare such as myself. The same applies to the artwork--simple but gets the job done.

I think out of all the adventures I read, the most favorite one has to be where the nuns of the school (I think Alison attends an all girls Catholic school?) battle a group of ninjas. It has me laughing from the bizarre scenario.

Alison Dare is a quick, fun, and easy read for all ages and for both genders.

Alison Dare battles the fire-breathing glow-in-the-dark dragon!

Alison Dare as she heroically leaps over spikes!

Alison Dare as she triumphantly defeats the Evil Old Lady Who Lives In A Shoe!

Alison Dare as she fights against a new evil-doer--herself! EVIL CLONES!

(Yes I know, she's quite busy isn't she ;P)
