Mighty Jack. Book one, Ben Hatke
Mighty Jack is a comic book about a boy called Jack who exchanges his mother’s car for some mysterious seeds. The seeds, however, are evil as they grow into a monstrous garden. His sister finds a seed and plants it. This turns into a dragon, who tells them to destroy the garden. Will they succeed? I thought this book was okay but it is not the sort of book I normally enjoy because it does not have a lot of words. Children who are not so keen on reading may find this book enjoyable as there are lots of illustrations.
