Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Hilo. Book 1, The boy who crashed to Earth

Hilo. Book 1, The boy who crashed to EarthHilo. Book 1, The boy who crashed to Earth, by Judd Winick

This graphic novel is about a boy who falls out of the sky. His name is Hilo. Hilo has no memory of where he has come from but he is starting to remember things. Can Hilo and his friends uncover his past? I thought this book was okay although I am not a huge fan of graphic novels. Children who are not big chapter book fans may enjoy this book more.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Hermes : tales of the trickster

Hermes : tales of the tricksterHermes : tales of the trickster, George O’Connor

This book is a part of a series of comic books. This comic is about Hermes, who has been a handful since he was born in a cave because his mother was banished. Even as a little boy, Hermes is causing trouble. I am not a huge fan of comics so I did not really enjoy this book. However, children who enjoy comics may enjoy this one.

Klawde : evil alien warlord catKlawde : evil alien warlord cat, by Johnny Marciano and Emily Chenoweth ; illustrated by Robb Mommaerts

Raj has everything. Great friends, a great apartment, and great pizza and comics all within walking distance of his apartment. Raj’s mother, however, has got a new job and they have to move. Raj always wanted a cat but Klawde is not your usual sort of cat, he is actually an evil emperor from across the universe. Things change when Klawde arrives at the door. I sort of enjoye dhtis book. It has aspects of humour and was easy to read.
