By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on February 17, 2012
Format: Paperback
Michael Rex has made a career of sorts out of spoofing classic children's books of yore. As such, Goodnight Moon becomes Goodnight Goon, The Runaway Bunny is Runaway Mummy and Curious George is the stellar Furious George Goes Bananas. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but parody ain't nothing to sneeze at. Now Mr. Rex switches gears a little. You can go on spoofing picture books until the cows come home but why limit yourself? If you're going to rework a classic go big or go home. Go for the gold. Take on a classic in the best sense of the term. You don't need to have read Conan the Barbarian to enjoy Mr. Rex's new graphic novel series Fangbone! Third Grade Barbarian but knowing the books won't hurt your appreciation either. Basically, if you've been waiting around for a series about third graders with swords and deadpan deliveries your prayers have been duly answered.

A warrior never shirks from danger, even if that warrior is just a kid. When the fate of the world (universe?) depends on Fangbone!

My son is 7 and although he is an excellent reader he gets very bored very easily and therefore had poor reading comprehension. Recently when it was time for him to do his nightly reading he yelled in protest "I hate reading!" I did not like what I was hearing. So I did some researching for some interesting titles that would pique his interest and this was one of them at the top of the list.

This is a comic/graphic novel. My son read this from cover to cover and did not stop until the story was complete. He even loved the story so much he was talking about it to his friends. This was great since usually their topics of conversation is mostly TV shows or video games. There is alot of humor, yet some good values concerning accepting those who appear different. Great story, wish there were more at my local library.

Would highly recommend.

You know, I get underpants and farts and psycho butts and boogers. I love the disgusting loopiness and poetry of Mr. Gum, (You're a Bad Man, Mr Gum!),and am drawn to the great relationship between Wiley and his Grampa, (Dracula vs. Grampa at the Monster Truck Spectacular (Wiley and Grampa's Creature Features, No. 1)), even as they fight off zombies with snot bombs. But I've never before read a book that trades in those sorts of antics and yet also includes heart and true friendship and even touches of the heroic.

Young Fangbone has been thrust into our world, tasked with safeguarding a relic that will keep a terrible evil, (the "Venomous Drool"), from arising on his home world. He decides to hide out in an elementary school and is immediately and unquestioningly befriended by Bill, who takes it upon himself to introduce this foreign "student" to the mysteries of third grade. Some of the Fangbone-out-of-water business is silly fun, but all around it the author has embroidered some very sly and knowing humor. This book addresses ADD, special needs classes, bullies, obtuse adults, and the loneliness of the outsider kid, without once ever making it a big deal, and it offers more support, good humor, hope and optimism than any dozen earnest message books. Some of the humor is obvious, some is subtle, rueful and wry, but that just means that readers of different abilities will be able to draw different pleasures from the book.

I can't resist a book with a barbarian on the cover so I picked this up for my 2nd grade son. He LOVED it. We've read it many times and it greatly promoted his reading because he would work at reading it by himself.

My 7-year-old son (1st grader) is in loves with these books. He has already read the first 3. Bought this one his friends 8th birthday.
The story line is entertaining, well written and the illustrations are fun. My son cannot wait until the next Fangbone is written :)

We've been checking these books out of our library, and my kids love them. They're great for beginning readers or as read-alouds to the younger kids. Fangbone is a great tribute to the Conan saga and an excellent send-up of what it's like to be a third grade outcast.

My son only has one complaint- there are only three books out, and there doesn't seem to be a 4th planned for the near future. Michael Rex needs to get back to work, or my almost-first-grade barbarian will go on a rampage.
