KIRKUS REVIEW

Kit Feeny and Arnold are best friends. They love graphic novels (they write their own) and stupid-awesome adventures (like selling all their clothes to get money for pizza because they spent all the money they HAD on superballs). Now Kit has to move. He smuggles Arnold onto the moving truck, but their parents aren’t big fans of that solution. Kit sets off to find a Replacement Arnold with a spiffy quiz (“Raise your hand if you like ninja fishing!”), but he ends up on Devon the Bully Comedian’s hit list. When being a Lonesome Hobo doesn’t work out for him, he devises a plan that may just solve all his problems. Readers will hope that this, the first Kit Feeny adventure, is the first of many (Kit Feeny: The Ugly Necklace [ISBN: 978-0-375-85615-0; PLB: 978-0-375-95615-7] publishes simultaneously). Townsend’s bright-eyed bear-hamster-pooch people and enthusiastically bizarre sense of humor will make this two-color graphic novel a hot item in any library. This is Babymouse for boys, and they will be begging for more. Lame-tastic! (Graphic fiction. 8-12)
