Staff Reviews


This is a story that any Green Lantern would have to face: the battle a Green Lantern must face while they still are facing their fear of failure, wondering if they are good enough and why does everyone think they need a babysitter? (Okay, that last part is probably just 13-year-old Tai Pham). Bad puns, a strong support system for the newest (and possibly youngest Green Lantern). There are secrets with twist and turn on every page. While age appropriate, the illustrations are superhero gritty. — Jeanette

Description


From Minh Lê, award-winning author of Drawn Together and Let Me Finish! comes the tale of a new hero!

Thirteen-year-old Tai Pham lives in the apartment above his grandmother's store, where his bedroom is crammed with sketchpads and comic books. But not even his most imaginative drawings could compare to the colorful adventure he's about to embark on.

When Tai inherits his grandmother's jade ring, he soon finds out it's more than just a piece of jewelry. Suddenly he's inducted into a group of space cops known as the Green Lanterns. He is about to learn that being a superhero takes more than just a ring. Does Tai have the willpower and the imigination to uphold his ba's legacy.
