They are intrigued by the characters and captivated by the story line -- the book has been a great hit.
We've pre-ordered the second book in the series, Legends of Zita the Spacegirl and they are all looking forward to its release.
A few weeks back, I started hearing good things about a graphic novel series called Zita the Spacegirl. My daughter and I love making up space stories, so we headed to the local library and checked out the first volume. My daughter immediately loved it.
I read it to her to double-check its appropriateness, and I’m pleased to say it’s a perfect match for what my daughter wants and for what I require. I won’t lie, I love the character as well. In fact, after we returned that first volume to the library, we bought all three volumes for her birthday.
I love Zita the Spacegirl because while it’s appropriate for a six-year-old, it’s also full of action and real science fiction. There are aliens, spaceships, robots, and explosions. But there’s also a lot of positive messages in it as well, such as loyalty, doing the right thing, facing your fear, and self-reliance.
Hatke’s art, by the way, is top-notch. Yes, it’s purposefully cartoonish, but I challenge you to find a more diverse and interesting collection of robots and aliens in any comic book. Furthermore, his sequential storytelling is perfect. My daughter has no trouble following the progression because of Hatke’s smooth transitions from panel to panel.Read more ›
The art is brilliant and brilliantly colorful, with terrific world-building and new details you find even on, say, the third read. This is a comic for both boys and girls, and adults too. No wonder it's gotten such good reviews in the press/blogs/Goodreads/MTV.com, etc. I can't wait for the sequel! Seriously, check this one out.
