Outside the Western Ruins, in the Burnt Spruce Forest, an assembly of talking birds and trees has convened. Their order of business: the lone, defenseless pupa that rained down from the sky. They name this small life form Dolly, and agree to protect her from centipedes, rats, and other evil critters. Dolly slowly begins to evolve — but into what? When a maniac spider tries to kidnap Dolly, the plant dwellers soon realize that they're in a new world of mystical myth they never accounted for.
Award-winning Italian cartoonist Leila Marzocchi’s terrifically lush scratchboard art makes for a perfect companion to her witty dialogue and profound storytelling. Nymph, equal parts tender and dark, gets to the heart of both human nature and mother nature and proves that, to raise a child-like larva, it takes a village. Or at least a forest.
