Goodreads Synopsis: 
The first Phoebe and Her Unicorn graphic novel!

Phoebe and Marigold decide to investigate a powerful storm that is wreaking havoc with the electricity in their town. The adults think it’s just winter weather, but Phoebe and Marigold soon discover that all is not what it seems to be, and that the storm may have a magical cause. To solve the case, they team up with Max, who is desperate for the electricity to return so he can play video games, and frenemy Dakota, who is aided by her goblin minions. Together, they must get to the bottom of the mystery and save the town from the magic storm.

I love Phoebe and her Unicorn - I have picked up a few of this series where it is a collection of comic shorts put into one place. This is the first full length graphic novel, one story and it is magical. 

In the story there is a power outage all over town and even Marigold is having problems with her magic - and that is unacceptable! Phoebe with the help of Marigold, Dakota and Max, are off to find the problem and fix it.

The full-length is just a entertaining as the collections - Phoebe and Marigold are still besties, and Marigold is still a bit conceited but it makes for a funnier tale. Dakota and her goblin cohort are so weird and Dakota is a wonderful enemy/friend combo. 

It was a bit different to read one story versus many shorts but I think that overall the story held together well and it didn't have as much punch as some of the one-liners from other issues but it was still very fun to read.
