About the Author

Erik Craddock grew up during the '80s and '90s on a steady diet of comics, video games, and pop culture. It was during his time as a student at New York City's School of Visual Arts that Stone Rabbit was born. He lives in Hoboken, New Jersey.


Gr 4-6-Galactically speaking, Stone Rabbit orbits in difficulty and subject matter somewhere between Dav Pilkey's Ricky Ricotta and Emmanuel Guibert's "Sardine" series (Roaring Brook/First Second). Early in this graphic novel, the main character meets his twin from another dimension and falls victim to the classic tope-being mistaken for your alter ego from another planet's plotline. Fortunately, in making his escape from the aliens looking to bring his doppelganger to justice, he discovers that the controls of the giant robot of doom he pilots have the same controls as an arcade fighter. Not just any arcade fighter either, but the Robot Fighter XXVII on which he's spent many hours honing his skills as a video gamer. The action is fast and furious, and it may be difficult for some readers to figure out what's happening. The writing's main flaw could be its main point of appeal for some readers-slang, video game terminology, and frequent repetition of Stone Rabbit's favorite response to trouble, "Crudmonkeys!" Reminiscent of Nickelodeon's Ren and Stimpy, this book is heavy on colorful graphics, with characters and worlds alike having typically exaggerated and abstracted features. This is a brand of silly targeting middle graders in particular, and hits its mark with laser precision. -Sarah Provence, Churchill Road Elementary School, McLean, VA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
