    Reason for Reading: The plot sounded fun and I thought my son might enjoy the book. This is an absolutely adorable story with a plot worthy of any popular cartoon show. Taro loves to draw comics and when he isn't reading them he is drawing them in his sketchbook and has pictures all over his room. He imagines they all live in a world called Doodledum. One day the very first drawing he made comes to life to tell him that Doodledum is in great peril. A nasty villain, King Crossout, is erasing every Reason for Reading: The plot sounded fun and I thought my son might enjoy the book. This is an absolutely adorable story with a plot worthy of any popular cartoon show. Taro loves to draw comics and when he isn't reading them he is drawing them in his sketchbook and has pictures all over his room. He imagines they all live in a world called Doodledum. One day the very first drawing he made comes to life to tell him that Doodledum is in great peril. A nasty villain, King Crossout, is erasing everything in Doodledum and if Taro doesn't come to save them they will all be deleted. He is given a magic pencil and an alter comic ego, Terrie the terrier, when he enters Doodledum. This is his first adventure where the King sends one of his minions, Cutlass Croc, to deal with him. What a fabulous, adventure story! Sure to win the hearts of any young gamers or anime watchers as it has that same type of action and plot. With a mission, puffed up bad guys and cute sidekicks, nothing is missing. The humour is hilarious and I had myself a good chuckle whilst reading. There was a part with the inevitable toilet humour but with a book that seems aimed at boys they'll love it, and it is just one short mini-arc. The book is done mostly in b/w but every now and then there is a full colour two page spread. The book isn't completely manga either as there is a running textual narrative throughout the book along with the manga aspect inserted within. Every inch of the book is used to tell the story with comic panels on the flaps and inside covers decorated with information. There's even a comic panel on the copyright page! The second book is out in March and if these are displayed properly in libraries I think Taro could become quite a popular character with the younger set.

    This graphic novel was interesting, but it was not my favorite book. It was a little odd. However, I’m sure it would be a little more interesting for the age group of kindergarden to second grade. In the book, a young boy is trying to work on his comic book, he is pulling into the story by a magic pencil. While he is pulled in, having the pencil is very important because it allows him to draw whatever he needs and he is able help characters that have been erased by King Crossout.

One cool thing about his graphic novel is that it is not just reading. This is what is so appealing to the younger audience. It includes mazes and connect-the-dot games. It is an interactive graphic novel.

    Great intro to manga! This graphic novel tells the story of Taro/Terrie, a young cartoonist, who gets pulled into his own creation, Doodledum, by a magic pencil. The problem with the two-page spreads, whether black and white or color, is that some important parts of the image end up in the gutter. Since the power of the story comes from the imagination, I think it would be interesting if children drew something they would like to invent or see in the real world.

    My 8 year old read this to her 5 year old brother. They thought it was a little boring in parts but giggled way too much at the potty humor parts- poop chute. I thought I would give it a go when they were done. The beginning started off cute and cute concept, but it lost me with the potty humor and the ending of the book.

    A nice intro to manga, but easier to read in left to right format. This would appeal to fans of Captain Underpants and other gross-out body humor books. Though the premise of a boy whose drawings come to life isn't very original it is relatable and there are a lot of creative elements in the execution. Plus, poop jokes!

    a fun book about a young cartoonist that uses his imagination when he is pulled into a story by his magic pencil. He is able to save people and create whatever he needs by using his magic pencil. it is a fun and silly story for young readers.

    Exuberant and full of kid-logic. I think this will be very popular with kids who like to make up characters and draw, which is a lot of kids.

    3 1/2 stars. Fantasy action and adventure in a graphic-style format for the younger set. There is plenty of humor (both silly and gross) and the characters are cute so this one has widespread appeal.
