Horn Book Review

Color by Guy Major. D.J., who worries that he's not good at anything, befriends newly crashed amnesiac extraterrestrial Hilo and is pulled into a madcap adventure complete with sentient robots, giant insects, and plenty of burp jokes. Impeccable comedic timing (including clever paneling and page turns), a diverse cast, and Hilo's frenetic enthusiasm for new experiences make this series-opening graphic novel pure fun.
