Pilot & Huxley: The first adventure

Pilot & Huxley: The first adventure - Dan McGuiness I read this at the suggestion of one of my students. I take their opinions seriously. She said it was funny and even went so far as to set it aside during check-in time so I could find it later. So I read it. I can see why a second grader would like this, but I didn't care for it; too much "random" and booger humor, not enough clever wit for a grown-up reader like me to really appreciate, but I'll definitely recommend it to the kind of student who might like jokes about boogers. There were a few fun meta jokes ("meet me in the next panel," and "a mysterious transmission that will be explained on page 46") and I would have liked to read more of that, but I'm not really the target audience.
