This is Hale and Pham’s second relatable graphic novel. Adults and children ages 10 and up can relate to the rules of 6th grade. Just when you think you have it figured out, everything changes.

Reminiscent of R.L. Stine's The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight, Katherine Arden's Small Spaces will give you the chills down your spine, goosebumps prickling your skin, and make you fearful of those eerie nights where dense white fog chokes the damp ground and makes you wonder what sort of creatures exist within the fog... ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Published: Viking Books for Young Readers - April 21st, 2020

Ages 8 to 10 can follow Kyle, Vic, Beth, Harry, and Nate, five kids with nothing in common but being at the Pathfinders camp, where kids swim, deal with random and frequent downpours of rain and bouts of fog, treasure hunt and dodge ridiculously smelly natural gas leaks. Their individual talents come into play as they start their adventure to finding the towns (possibly real) long lost treasure. In the meantime, they must deal with said gas, rain, the past and present overlapping (literally) and a creepy mansion. And if they find the treasure, it will stop the demolition of the mansion and their camp. So, you know, no pressure or anything. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The Boy Who Became a Dragon: A Biography of Bruce Lee by Jim Di Bartolo - Book Review

Published: Graphix - February 4th, 2020

If you are looking for a pure biography of Lee, this isn’t it. It is a great story about a person growing up in Hong Kong in the 1950s. A boy who had much anger and a sense of who he thought he was; a young man who had to deal with the gangs and violence of the streets; someone who saw the horrors of World War Two. The prejudices he faced among his own people as well as whites, shaped him into the performer, martial arts expert, and man we knew. The artwork is both gorgeous and grotesque when required. The blacks and purple of bruises, the red of blood or the symbolic dragon Lee was born under and the 1950s styles come to life. Facts you may or may not know about Lee play out as if they are a movie. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
