Pilot & Huxley First Adventure – Just in time for spring break, Graphix releases a book that kids will love. Best buddies Pilot and Huxley get zapped to another dimension by aliens who want to take over the Earth. While trying to get home, they must traverse a swamp of bees, battle a sea monster, and end up in the nose of a giant dragon. Their only way out? Help from a girl who can transform into a monster. Kids will love this blend of silly characters and gross humor. With similar elements to shows like South Park and SpongeBob Squarepants, it hard to think that kids won’t want to snatch this title up. Adults who also enjoy those shows will probably enjoy this title too.
Twin Spica Volume 6 – More obstacles appear as Asumi continues to strive for her dream to become an astronaut. As flight training continues, Asumi and her classmates are put into small escape pods to simulate traveling through space and re-entry before having to go through some grueling survival training. It will take everything they’ve learned so far to make it through. And then it’s mid-terms, with a new element to tackle, language training. The story of Asumi and her friends journey to become astronauts continues to be an engrossing and entertaining read. Tweens and teens will love the personal drama and tense action as Asumi and her friends struggle to overcome their own problems to fulfill their dreams.
