Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When not struggling with the petulance of other kids, Mal—a cross between Charlie Brown and a mad scientist—invents a dream-entering machine so that he can help his dog, Chad, with recurring nightmares of a giant cat. When the monstrous beast escapes the dreamworld, McCranie depicts a sense of menace that will thrill and chill his readers. He also exemplifies details of the human figure to bring out the huggability of his charming characters. As with the first book, The Biggest, Bestest Time Ever! (2011), this graphic novel delivers fast-paced fun that still captures the emotional trials of childhood with empathy and respect. Grades 2-5. --Jesse Karp

My not-so-little-anymore girl likes Mal and Chad. Has now read I think three of the books. They are entertaining and quite funny for her. I would recommend for anyone, though some would say these types of books might be best for kids for whom reading is a challenge ... my girl is a big reader and loves these, so ... looks like they have universal appeal.

So what are "Mal and Chad" books like? Well imagine "Dexter's Laboratory," "Jimmy Neutron," and a dash of "Calvin & Hobbes" and you've got a pretty good idea. And please don't take that as me saying that Stephen has co-opted these other guys for his own, no no...Mal and Chad is unique in it's own way. This is the second printed adventure for "Mal and Chad" (they started off life as a webcomic which can still be found online) and this adventure is even bigger than the last one. Yes, even bigger than dinosaurs!

Mal is a certifiable genius. He doesn't like to brag about it, but he's invented invisible spray, a time machine, a dream machine, and most importantly gave his best friend, Chad, the ability to talk (Chad is a dog by the way.) But he tries to be a normal kid. But Mal is feeling a bit left out as Megan and her girlfriends have started a no boys allowed club and the club he started kicked him out. What's a guy to do? Fortunately Chad has a problem that needs to be solved. He's having really, really scary dreams and only Mal can help him face his fears. So using his dream portal Mal enters Chad's dreams, but something goes wrong and the dream creature follows them back to the real world and now Megan and her friends are in danger. Can Mal save everyone and stop the monster? Or will things go from bad to worse?

This is a fantastic read, regardless of age. Even though Mal is a supergenius, he's one that we can all relate to. Who can't relate to someone wanting to help their best friend out? Even though Mal is a super genius and invents things like a dream portal, all he wants to do is help his friends. It's his first thought with Chad and it's his first thought when the dream monster escapes.

Bought this graphic novel for my son and he reads it over and over again. He is 8 years old and has discovered his spark for reading once he picked this book up.
