    Super fun scientific journal NOT a diary, as Swamp Kid would like you to know I can t recommend highly enough hilarious, strange, fresh, and charming.

    This book is great and my son really enjoyed it, too My son really loved Kirk Scroggs illustrations and writing He s gone on to read the Muppet books that Scroggs has created, too Finding great work that my son can connect with is important to me, because he wants to be a professional animator Right alongside Dear Justice League, The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid is at the top of DC s wave of Zoom graphic novels I highly recommend this work to any child between the ages of 6 12, parents, comics lovers, and any fan of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.

    My 9 year old son loves this book He s a fan of similar book like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Captain Underpants and Dog Man so I think kids who like those books are going to really enjoy this book It s a similar style to Diary of a Wimpy Kid with Russell writing his thoughts in this notebook and also doodling My son really loves that this notebook is meant to look like a spiral notebook and Russell uses what should be the holes for the spine to doodle different things He really loves the illustrations which he said were really fun, silly and detailed They are in black and white for some and really vivid colors for others My son loves humorous books and he found this really funny Once he started this he didn t want to put it down and he finished the book really quickly Afterwards he told me how much he loved it and asked me to look up the author to see if he had any other books he could read I love it when my son gets excited about books so I hope this is the start of a new series I think this book would appeal to a wide range of readers and the great illustrations could really entice reluctant readers.

    This is one of those times that I wish had stars to give I would give them.This book is an absolute hoot Maybe it s because I live in Louisiana where it takes place and Houma is pronounced Home uh, by the way Maybe it s because the illustrations are amazing Maybe it s because they actually mix real science in with a silly, entertaining story Maybe it s because he mixes pop culture and what real kids are into so seamlessly into the story Whatever the reason, Kirk Scoggs has the solution.I m not going to rehash the plot That s been done But prior to giving a book like this to one of my kids, I read it myself I was seriously lol ing at this I will say this I ve gotten on and ordered 3 of Scoggs books so far He has created a perfect mix of graphic novel and chapter book that is perfect for kids transitioning from younger to older reads He ends with fun little extra activities hat kids can do I just love this

    Middle schooler Russell Weinwright is adopted He was found in a swamp and is not entirely human he has a huge arm, vines growing over his body and a frog has taken up residence The odd thing is that he goes to a regular school, has regular friends and regular teachers No one takes too much notice of this Swamp Kid at the start of the book except the coach who wants him on the track team It seems that he is able to shoot out vines in front of himself to technically cross the finish line first.Swamp Kid wants to find out about his parents so learns all he can about the swamp as well as explore it Seems there was once a laboratory there that was destroyed plus he s being followed my mysterious men in dark suits Great set up.The best thing about this book is the humor that keeps the story moving plus the fantastic illustrations by the author The target audience is 8 to 12 year olds but kids on both sides of this range will probably also get a kick out of it Lots of fun.

    My 8 year old son absolutely loved The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid The first day he got it, we had to force him to stop reading it so he could get some sleep Then, he took it to school the next day and finished it during reading time The plot, the awesome illustrations, and the characters are attention grabbing As his mom, I was also happy to see that the book uses a wide vocabulary and taught him several new words through context I think if you find your kid sneaking a book after bedtime, it s a good sign that it is a great book I highly recommend

    My 9yo son really enjoyed the drawings and some of the story lines in this book The binding is durable and the cover is as well This book is written like a sort of journal that a kid might keep So the neat thing is that, along with the reading, this might lend itself to a kid being interested in writing as well In fact, my son began keeping a spiral bound journal at around the same that he began reading this book Altogether, a great win in my mind.
