In this fairy tale of a graphic novel, a mysterious, tiny being upsets the balance of the woods.

A lone, defenseless pupa has rained down from the sky. An assembly of talking birds and trees agree to protect "Dolly" as it begins to evolve — but into what? As the humanoid creature starts showing a predilection for flight and music, magical clues start unveiling themselves. Italian award-winning cartoonist Leila Marzocchi's terrifically lush scratchboard drawings are a perfect companion to her witty dialogue and profound storytelling. Nymph gets to the heart of both human and Mother Nature to prove that, to raise a child-like larva, it takes a village. Or at least a forest.

Praise For Nymph

This heartwarming fantasy, filled with amusing and distinct characters, is a tale of found family, the importance of working together as a community, and finding your true self.

A dreamy, childlike fantasy with a bracingly adult perspective, the comic defies categorization, metamorphosing like its heroine in strange and unexpected ways.

In the stories of Leila Marzocchi, the
composition, the characters, the use of light and colors denote great
imagination and enormous intelligence.
