Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice

Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice - Mike Maihack **Received a copy via NetGalley**

I am a fan of anything having to do with Cleopatra, so when I saw this on NetGalley as a children's graphic novel I just had to read it! And let me say I am so glad I did! This was an outstanding children's graphic novel. The artwork and coloring was so amazing. Especially when she was training and on her mission.

The story follows Cleopatra at the age of fourteen. She skips her lesson and goes to get a friend they both have a fun day skipping school. They come across some type of vault/cave with a bunch of cool things inside. Being the curious young lady she was she touched something that glowed and transported her to the future. In the future she meets talking cats who tell her she is the savior of the galaxy. To prepare her for battle she must take basic classes and target practice.

This story is very adventurous and has a bit of action to it. I totally loved it!

My favorite parts:
+ the way she sat and slept in her basic classes
+ outsmarting her teacher in target practice with one simple shot.
+ when she had detention and explained why she had detention
