The Glorkian Warrior isn't the brightest bulb in the box, so it's good he's got his trusty talking backpack to advise him as they set out on a perilous journey to deliver a pizza. The pizza's got clams and peanut butter on it, so it's not clear who's going to want it, but deliver it they will. With bright, lively illustrations and classic pratfalls, this graphic novel for kids is 112 pages of super icky gross-out humor and ludicrously bad decisions— in other words, The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza is a winner.
The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza is an interesting graphic novel from the point of view of an alien who gets a call to deliver a pizza. Instead of telling the person that he’s not a pizza place, he embarks on a journey to deliver said pizza. This graphic novel was a nutty adventure full of random encounters and an ending that had me laughing.
I love the design of the characters and world and especially the talking backpack, which seems much more intelligent than the hero of the story. The comedy of the story is very slapstick and a book that will have many young, eager readers. The colors in the book are very bright and create a unique world for readers to explore. While it wasn’t a favorite of mine or gave a lot of depth in a story, I’m sure my students will love every aspect of this book.
I’m hoping we will see future adventures of The Glorkian Warrior as it’s a character that really came to life and sparked some hilarious moments.
