Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2–5—Daniel Jackson Lim, aka DJ, is an ordinary boy in a family of overachievers. He meets Hilo, a robot boy who fell to Earth from space and doesn't know where he came from or what he is doing on this planet. DJ, along with his best friend, Gina, help Hilo unlock the secrets of his past and stop the destruction of the planet. The first installment in this graphic novel series is a fast-paced adventure that is beautifully illustrated in full color and aimed at readers who would love to have a superhero friend. Captivating, silly, tender, and, most importantly, funny, this title will be popular with all readers—from reluctant to avid. The strength of friendship and cooperation is a theme throughout. With a cliff-hanger ending, the book will have kids eager for the sequel. VERDICT Diverse characters, good friends, and humorous dialogue coupled with colorful illustrations and plenty of action make this a must-have for all children's graphic novel collections.—Paula Huddy, The Blake School-Highcroft Campus, Wayzata, MN

Review

"A wholeheartedly weird and wonderful tale of friendship, acceptance, and robots."
Kirkus Reviews starred review

"Diverse characters, good friends, and humorous dialogue coupled with colorful illustrations and plenty of action makes this a must-have for all children’s graphic novel collections." —School Library Journal starred review

“This is lively and entertaining adventure with enough risk to give it heft and plenty of solid friendship to keep readers buoyed… Lush, bright colors and a freewheeling approach to panels create an immersive environment: it’s clear that this is art, and it’s also clear that the art is running the show, not the panels or even the words. Readers will likely find it a tough wait for the next volume to come along.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books starred review
