Already an established series figure in Britain, Hooey appears here in his American debut, and readers who speed through this fast and funny read will hope that more installments quickly become available. Voake’s text is both lively and wry and his characters are fresh and believable. Dodson’s numerous monochromatic ink and gouache illustrations are equally original. Although this has broad appeal, it might be a particularly good choice for the boys goofing off in the back of the room.
