Booklist Review: "Beloved graphic novelists Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm (Babymouse) and Jarrett Krosoczka (Lunch Lady) have assembled a host of popular artists to create kids' comics celebrating the joys of recess. Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints, 2013) kicks things off with the tale of a geek who hilariously wins his way into The Super-Secret Ninja Club. 300 Words, by Dan Santat (Sidekicks, 2011), stands out from the crowd: it is a beautifully subtle, funny, and slightly gross love story that features delightfully scruffy art and believable characters. Raina Telgemeier (Smile, 2010) and Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy, 2011) offer a more down-to-earth story about a group of dodgeball fans who discover the appeal of tabletop gaming while stuck inside in The Rainy Day Monitor. These eight comics by fan-favorite creators, including Ursula Vernon (Dragonbreath, 2009) and Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants), make up a collection with something for everyone, as long as they like a bit of silliness. Kids will eagerly pick up this lighthearted anthology, thanks to the cheerful cover and familiar characters.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Babymouse and Lunch Lady are among a few familiar faces (along with plenty of new ones) in this very funny collection of eight comics shorts from the Holms, Krosoczka, Gene Luen Yang, Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, Ursula Vernon, and more. The stories generally embrace a school or recess theme, though in wildly different ways. Eric Wight's talking cupcake, Jiminy Sprinkles, has a playground run-in with some surly vegetables ("They think they're so much cooler than everyone else because they're vitamin-fortified"), while Dan Santat explores homework-sharing and first love in a story that also features an embarrassing and very public vomiting incident. Among the many moments that will keep readers in stitches: Babymouse having her whiskers zapped off by the god Zeus ("You dare insult a mean girl??" he bellows); knockoff versions of President Obama, Iron Man, and Nintendo's Princess Peach competing in an RPG-style game of kickball; and Petey the cat turning the world's citizens "rilly dumb" in a hilariously inane Dog Man story from Dav Pilkey. The orange two-color artwork lets the artists' distinctive styles shine; readers can only hope more such collaborations are on the way. Ages 7-10. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
