What We’re Reading – Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth by Judd Winick

 

Hilo: The Boy who Crashed to Earth by Judd Winick

Graphic Novel series for middle grade readers (I’m guessing ages 6-12 interest level, 9+ reading level)

 

Robots! Robots that look like kids! A robot that crashes to earth and learns to burp! And then fights intergalactic robot powers with two human kids and a robot sister and a magical cat warrior! Seriously, there is nothing not to like about this series, unless you’re not into fantasy-adventure punctuated with burp jokes. If you’re not into those things, probably this is not the mini-book-review site for you, because my kid and I love mild rudeness, unexpected magic, and drama.  My reluctant-reading rising 2nd grade kiddo does all the sound effects, and is learning to recognize Hilo’s catchphrase (“Outstanding!”), so we call it a team reading effort.  Highly recommend, and don’t think you’ll get away with just having book 1. We absolutely tore through the 6 book series!
