Series: Eek and Ack #1
Published by Stone Arch Books on January 1st 2009
Genres: Graphic Novel
What’s the best day for an alien invasion? Halloween, of course. When Eek and Ack visit Earth during the ghoulish holiday, they fit right in with the other trick-or-treaters. Unfortunately, so does Wolfy the Wolfman!
I have to admit this book cracked me up. Eek and Ack travel to earth in their spaceship – that really looks like a washing machine – to discover why it is so hard to conquer. Their disguises are hilarious – one wearing a tutu and the other in a hooded robe of sorts. They end up traveling to earth on Halloween and meet up with a wolfboy. Let’s just say, they’re not staying long on this Earth.
This graphic novel is comical and fantastical, elements that I both enjoy. These books will be great for kids who like something a bit more funny. And this is another great book for librarians and teachers – including a glossary, a section talking a bit more about werewolves, discussion questions and writing prompts. Probably a book I’ll be purchasing for my school library.
Recommended for 2nd grade and up.
