KIRKUS REVIEW

The Glorkian Warrior must leave his couch and face his heroic fate: to deliver a pepperoni pizza.

The three-eyed, cotton-candy–colored and wholly witless Glorkian Warrior meets his destiny one fateful night when a mysterious caller asks him to deliver a pizza. Guided by his trusty companion, the lemon yellow Super Backpack, he sets out to fulfill the mission—despite the fact that he’s not a pizza-delivery guy. A series of madcap mishaps ensues, and they encounter such strange and silly beings as a Gonk that likes to bonk, a lime green alien orphan from a pizza-snatching ship and a formidable Magic Robot with an explosive laugh. As zippy as a bowl of sugary cereal, the Glorkian Warrior and his motley crew snowball from one escapade to another at a comically frenetic pace, encountering explosions, blasting spaceships and punching himself in the face. While the Glorkian Warrior might not be the brightest star in the sky, his antics are consistently imaginative and outrageous, ideal for young readers who like a healthy helping of the absurd. Kochalka’s worlds are always winsome, strange and silly; this is certainly one of his stronger offerings.

Vibrantly weird and wonderful. (Graphic science fiction/humor. 6-10)
