A warrior never shirks from danger, even if that warrior is just a kid. When the fate of the world (universe?) depends on Fangbone!Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
The story line is entertaining, well written and the illustrations are fun. My son cannot wait until the next Fangbone is written :)
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.
