Review – Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth

June 20, 2015


When D. J. sees something fall from the sky, he goes running and discovers a boy about his age wearing nothing but silver underwear.  The boy doesn’t seem to know where’s he from or why he’s on Earth.  D. J. takes him in and does what he can to help him.  But there could be a problem, it seems that Hilo isn’t the only thing that crashed to Earth.

Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth by Judd Winick is an entertaining graphic novel for the middle grade set.  Full of humor, this adventurous tale of friendship will appeal to even the most reluctant reader.  The fantastic full color illustrations and diverse characters make this book even more captivating.  It’s the first in the series and ends with a cliff hanger that left me wanting more so I’ll be watching for the next book in the series.  Be sure to check this book out for the middle grade reader in your life!

    Sounds adorable! I wonder if Booking Son is too old for it?
