Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Beloved graphic novelists Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm (Babymouse) and Jarrett Krosoczka (Lunch Lady) have assembled a host of popular artists to create kids’ comics celebrating the joys of recess. Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints, 2013) kicks things off with the tale of a geek who hilariously wins his way into “The Super-Secret Ninja Club.” “300 Words,” by Dan Santat (Sidekicks, 2011), stands out from the crowd: it is a beautifully subtle, funny, and slightly gross love story that features delightfully scruffy art and believable characters. Raina Telgemeier (Smile, 2010) and Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy, 2011) offer a more down-to-earth story about a group of dodgeball fans who discover the appeal of tabletop gaming while stuck inside in “The Rainy Day Monitor.” These eight comics by fan-favorite creators, including Ursula Vernon (Dragonbreath, 2009) and Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants), make up a collection with something for everyone, as long as they like a bit of silliness. Kids will eagerly pick up this lighthearted anthology, thanks to the cheerful cover and familiar characters. Grades 2-5. --Snow Wildsmith --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


Publishers Weekly starred review, April 28, 2014:
“The orange two-color artwork lets the artists’ distinctive styles shine; readers can only hope more such collaborations are on the way.”
