Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
High praise for The Totally Awesome Epic Quest of the Brave Boy Knight:
"The panels have an appealingly heightened sense of emotion, with terrific facial expressions and an unassuming sophistication in coloration. ...loopily involving...big-hearted fun." —Kirkus Reviews
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Humorous tones abound as beginning readers discover the secret about what really happened to dinosaurs. Apparently, they traveled into outer space and settled on Planet Lettuce and Planet Meatball. These names are obvious references to carnivores and herbivores that fans of dinosaurs will recall. These creatures from differing planets do not like one another and disagreements and battles ensue regarding who is better: those who eat salads or those who eat hamburgers. Bubbled text with whimsical illustrations provide context for early readers. The balanced layout brings both to a level that emerging readers and younger fans of Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series (Scholastic) will enjoy. However, at times there is too much dialogue on a page, which may be distracting to emerging readers. An additional purchase for graphic-novel or comics collections.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI

Meet the Author

Self-billed (though many would agree) as a "rockstar cartoonist," Pranas grew up in a family whose artistic pursuits included dance, photography, and writing. As a kid, any blank inches of paper that came his way were sure to be covered with doodles and drawings. Pranas is the creator of the well-received Balloon Toons title
The Totally Awesome Adventures of the Brave Boy Knight. He will be forging further adventures for both the Dinosaurs in Space and the intrepid BBK. The author lives in Chicago, Illinos.
