Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Powell (The Goon) tells a captivating story about a pint-sized bearded woman. We follow the adventures of Lula—imagine a Lilo-size version of Flemish baroque painter Anthony van Dyck—as she trades a lock of her hair for what turns out to be a bizarre-looking alien she names Chimichanga. Of course, the other members of her traveling freak show don’t all take kindly to Chimichanga, even though he might be the only attraction that will pack in enough curiosity seekers to turn a profit. Then there’s the witch who traded with Lula to worry about. She quickly discovers that a potion containing Lula’s hair can temporarily cure explosive flatulence. When an evil corporation, Dinderly Pharmaceuticals, acquires the potion —well, that’s when the intestinal distress really hits the proverbial fan. What makes this story work is not simply the artwork or the pacing, both of which are excellent, but its adorably indefatigable heroine. Occasionally, the book’s point about the identity of the real freaks in society is done with a heavy hand, but a bit of moralizing doesn’t detract from a strangely wonderful graphic narrative. (Oct.)

    Cute, Sweet, and a Little Bit Odd

    Seriously.a bearded girl? I'm there. While this one was crazy hard for me to read (something with the formatting of the ebook, which I'm sure will be worked out before publishing), I still wanted to continue reading it and find out what was going on. The girl, who is pretty clueless ends up with this giant of a beast - Chimichanga. He's pretty innocent looking, despite his size. The story is cute and sweet and just a little bit odd. I like the art (once again despite the bad formatting for the ebook) and think that it definitely was the star of the story.

    Cute story

    This was a cute story... I like the concept very much. The art was AMAZING.
    However, I think the story was just enough out of the box to loose many mainstream readers. I would recommend this book for 7th grade and up - particularly students who may be reluctant readers. The throwaway jokes in this book are great for upper middle school and high school students.
