Squish Super Amoeba by Jennifer L Holm and Matthew Holm

He's an average comic book loving, Twinkie eating, grade school kid who just happens to be an AMOEBA.

Random House Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  This is a graphic novel written by a brother "Inkboy" and sister "WriterGirl" team.  You can purchase a copy at your local bookstore right now.  This is the first book in this series.

Squish is an interesting character.  He looks like a blob on paper, but wears a baseball cap.  He also has problems with certain classmates, has unusual friends and tries hard to do the "right" thing.  In short, he's a lot like any other little boy.

The graphics are fun, the text is easy to read, and it has an interesting ending.  It's for ages 7-10, and I think young ones will enjoy following Squish around on his adventures.

Happy reading!
