Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3–Of these books, Boris and Class Pets competently fill the gap between easy readers and early chapter books, while Meltdown Madness and Coco are a bit more challenging. Boris really wants a komodo dragon. He writes to the zoo to see if their komodo dragons ever take vacations. Turns out, they don't, and Boris's plans are ruined. He puts his skink in the komodo cage and tries to pass it off as a baby dragon. After it escapes, Boris reopens his letter from the zoo, finds tickets for free admission, and his whole family has an outing. Missy wants to take home the class pets for the weekend but her plans are derailed when a new girl is determined to have what she wants. In the end, Missy bests the bully. Boris's and Missy's stories are told through traditional text, many speech bubbles, and comic-book panels. Both books incorporate full-color artwork throughout. Meltodown Madness looks the most like a traditional early chapter book, with many black-and-white sketches accompanying the text. The young narrator has a magic coin that translates his words into reality (sayings like “money doesn't grow on trees” spawn a dollar bill under the tree). The boy's powers often cause more trouble than good, but in the end he is able to reason his way into a solution. Coco is in the form of a diary and includes black-and-white lists and doodles. The little girl uses her love of baking cupcakes to help save snails from becoming extinct. Words like “extinct” and “fund-raiser” are defined in doodled bubbles. All four books should be popular.–Amy Commers, South St. Paul Public Library, MNα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review

"Joyner moves effortlessly between small written sections and big illustrations with comic style text. Really gorgeous...But above all, they're just ridiculously fun boy books."

Format: Paperback
My 8 year old started off 2nd grade a bit behind in reading. And he was always very frustrated when it was time to read, because he was reading "baby" books. All the books around his level were boring books. He was jealous of the kids in class who could read "chapter books".

Well, I got this book for him, and he read it in a few days, and he ROCKED IT! He was SO proud of himself, and both his teacher and I have seen an improvement in his motivation and even fluency while reading his required texts at home and at school.

Great idea for kids who need a bit more fun stuff to read, but aren't quite ready for the big chapter books.

This book is perfect for my son who is learning how to read. The stories are engaging, the pictures give him hints when he gets stuck, and the new words are repeated throughout. Also, the books are teaching my son about the world. The books have been leading to some fun and new conversations between us. This book is perfect for a new reader. We've already read the first four books. I hope more are coming! We can hardly wait. Who says that learning how to read has to be boring? Boris makes it fun.

The Boris books are so much fun - for adults and kids. Each story is good to read over 3 evenings before bed. It's nice to have a slightly longer story, that keeps attention but doesn't last so long that new readers lose interest.
