Nnewts: Escape from the Lizzarks

Escape from the Lizzarks (Nnewts) - Doug TenNapel

My 7th grader really enjoys TenNapel's books, and he wants me to read them all too. Fortunately for me, they don't take too long.

The artwork in this book is good, as usual. And, as usual, I struggle to follow the story, because everything happens so quickly and the story seems to jump along. I am left wondering—did I miss a reference earlier? Or is this an entire new plot point? Wait—who? Huh? Wait—they died? They worship who?

So, interesting, but honestly I would just rather read a text novel than one of these speedy graphic novels.
