Reviews

"The characters are engaging, the message focuses on teamwork, and the book is a lot of fun." --Paste Magazine, from their "10 Best Kids Comics of 2017" "With brilliant worldbuilding and humor in spades, Lawrence has conceived a truly exceptional graphic tale that's also a classic underdog story; don't miss this one." --Kirkus, starred review

"Lawrence's illustrations are bright and dynamic, driving the action across (and down, and around) each page." --Shelf Awareness, starred review"It's an exciting, laugh-a-minute story that plainly reveals the rewards of teamwork, whatever planet one calls home." --Publishers Weekly"This is a gorgeous book, with lush imagery." --School Library Journal

"The fact that much of this graphic novel takes place away from Earth gives Lawrence both visual and textual freedom, and the odd, nifty landscapes and madcap, unexpected camp adventures demonstrate his creative flair." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"With a diverse cast of human girls and lots of supportive riendships at its heart, this gratifying comic will please fans of Craig Thompson's Space Dumplins." --Booklist
