Stardust Kid Paperback – April 1, 2008
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

In this graphic novel by the creators of the Abadazad books, Cody faces all the standard challenges of a 12-year-old boy, such as juggling friends and trying to keep the peace with his family. But unlike most boys his age, he’s fated to play a pivotal role in the eons-spanning war going on between forces in nature. As the merciless Woman turns humanity into pet trees and insects, Cody, his friends, and his little sister set out on a quest to find the mysterious Stardust Kid, who can change the tide of the war and save the planet. DeMatteis and Ploog, with more than 50 years of comic experience between them, borrowed elements from Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series and Clive Barker’s Abarat books to create a fantasy that is conceptually rich but somewhat light in adventure. Dense with narration and focusing largely on self-discovery, this slow, thoughtful tale will appeal most to patient readers who appreciate more introspection that action. Grades 4-7. --Jesse Karp
From the Publisher
"It transcends the medium and transcends the genre. - Popthought.com
"...should easily find an audience among fans of J.K. Rowling..." - Buzzscope
"... an enjoyable fantasy adventure quest, and kids (of all ages...) should really enjoy this... The artwork does have a sort of storybook look to it, and is lush in several places, full of grotesque and nearly quaint creatures." - Comixtreme
