I used to love reading My Weird School as a kid, and I see it has expanded further. The transition to graphic novel is a little rocky but not bad. The authors even included a survey to review how they’re doing with their first comic attempt.

You can tell the characters are copied-and-pasted and manipulated to do a few poses. I get it. Taking shortcuts as an artist is certainly fine, especially with lengthy projects like graphic novels. I only point it out because it gave the artwork such a stiff feeling.

Anyway, the story’s nonsensical but fun. At one point, AJ and Andrea argue over killing aliens or not. Yeah, the story’s wacky as you would expect. There are a lot of well-meaning facts in the story from climate change to NASA. The running gag” …That’s when the weirdest thing in the history of the world happened” always felt like an awkward transition to me. But I also fully acknowledge I’m not the intended demographic. I’m sure kiddies will have a blast like I used to do with the chapter books as a kid.

The first book I've ever finished. It's a good basketball story about morality and courage. Good book for young people.

This book was a masterpiece for me among all children's book I've read. The adventure, the story-telling, and the morals. Undertone racism suitable for kids, Dan Gutman is just a good child-panderer.
I will never forget this book, it opened my eyes before that black people get discriminated because of their race, and now I fight for them as an advocate for race equality.

Ms. Hannah shows A.J. and the gang that art is everywhere! She wears dresses made out of potholders and collects garbage instead of throwing it out. But worst of all, she makes A.J. draw a picture with smelly, tattletale Andrea!
