Becca Hillburn's 7 Inch Kara is a children’s graphic novel set in a world where Lilliputians — tiny humans — exist. This story revolves around Kara, an innocent and optimistic young Lilliputian girl who has been made to believe that the existence of humans is a myth. She lives with her parents; her protective father, Rowan, who is distraught at the idea that a human family will soon be living in the area, and her devoted mother, Meldina, who grew up in the area and believes that living near a human family can be beneficial. Join Kara as she learns about humans and the great wide world out there.

Becca Hillburn’s characters are interesting and relatable. On one side, we have Rowan who is anxious about living near humans — and for good reason! I’d be terrified if I had to live near a giant’s residence too. On the other side, we have Meldina who enumerated the many benefits of living near a human family, not to mention her emotional attachment from all the childhood memories she has of the place. And then we have Kara with her wide-eyed curiosity. Kara’s world is currently small and I’m excited to see how she will go about her adventures in the future. Hillburn’s 7 Inch Kara is a story that brought a smile to my face. The artwork with the watercolor aesthetic is delightful in and of itself and, with the lighthearted story and the fascinating characters, I couldn’t help but feel that the sky has turned a little bit brighter and my day a little bit happier. This is an amazing story and I look forward to more from Becca Hillburn!
