Odd is the only word I can think to describe this graphic novel. I have no idea how to talk about this one, or even what grades to booktalk it in. I feel like it would have been better if it had been more on the fantasy/fun side and not so serious. It is definitely going to take the right kid to...

It was weird, I'm not really sure what the moral or the point of the story was but regardless I did enjoy reading it.

A very quirky tale about a boy raised with dogs who is trained to have an exceptional sense of smell. I think this might have been just a bit too out there for me. Mickey was difficult to relate to and his uncle and aunt were hard to like. Maybe if it had been slightly longer I would have felt li...

If this becomes a series, and Mickey Spitz learns how to direct his "superpower" - a developed skill at sniffing things out and picking up on his own and others' feelings - to foil criminals and uncover mysteries, it could be great. I liked the artistic style and think it will appeal to the 7- to...

This is the case of a mismatched book and reader.
I'm a dog lover, so I had hopes that I would strongly connect with the animals in the book. Unfortunately, I found that I didn't personally connect with Mickey or his story, and I felt parts of it came across as rushed.
However, I'd still encourage...
