Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This collection of the comic strip chronicles the adventures of a spiky-haired young boy who dabbles in mad science and has a pet snake named Frank, a squid named Ishmael, assorted robots and creatures (such as the monster under the bed), and a single, perpetually sleep-deprived father. The black-and-white strips are mostly wordless, with some writing and sound effects to help the reader understand what’s happening. The strips (each just one or two pages long) have a somewhat macabre sense of humor but still remain suitable and nonthreatening for elementary-school readers: Lio arms ducks with miniature bombs to drop upon hunters; the boy greets aliens, who use him as an ornament for their rear-view mirror; and he follows a path on the ground and ends up in a giant game of Mouse Trap. While part of the publishers’ new line of AMP! Comics for Kids, this book can also be enjoyed by adults, especially those who grew up with Charles Addams and Edward Gorey cartoons. Grades 4-7. --Kat Kan

About the Author

Mark Tatulli, who was first known for his Heart of the City comic strip, took on Lio as an outlet for his dark and twisted humor.

In addition to his cartooning experience, Tatulli is also an accomplished filmmaker and animator, and is the recipient of three Emmy awards for his television work.

Mark currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, son, and two daughters. His children are the true joy of his life and the inspiration for much of his comic artwork.

My son and I are huge Lio fans. We were really excited that there was a new collection coming out. Imagine my surprise when i found out it's not new.. completely recycled. Seriously, there ought to be a warning label saying "this is one of the prior collections with a new cover".

Quite a few of these are chuckle worthy the first or second time. Unfortunately, all of them are old, and most of them are on the 3rd run...

If you're looking for an introduction to Lio, it is not so bad. If you've bought some of Tatulli's books before, you'll already have all of these panels.

What do you do when your kids is obsessed with monsters and zombies? The best answer is to introduce him to Lio. Lio is the expressive silent type. His hair along with his actions make a statement kids will recognize, especially since there are no real words for kids to read. They can use their imagination as they examine the illustrations. The character Lio is creative, in one scene he attaches plunger cups to his shoes and climbs the walls, therefore hiding from his brother. Lio builds robots and snuggles with his pet cobra Frank. His imagination teeters between genius and the macabre. One particular scene demonstrates bullies making fun of a kid who has a hunchback. Lio rescues him and utilizes him as an assistant for his snake. One can only guess where this scenario will lead. Another scenario demonstrates Lio reaching out to aliens via radio waves, and once they arrive he trades a tricycle for their ship. Strangely humorous, kids and adults will love Lio and his ingeniously unusual humor and antics.

Lio is a Mad scientist type boy who makes friends with all sorts of animals especially spiders, snakes and aliens. If you like the Far Side you might like this especially if you don't like to read as much and like pictures that tell a story.This book makes you think because some of the pictures are a little deep so it's not a boring cartoon book that get's old quick because you might want to look again at some of the pictures or study them with a friend.
