Overview


Filled with a year's worth of games, stories, myths, comics, and more, CTON's Super A-maze-ing Year of Crazy Comics will keep young readers entertained through all four seasons. Young ones join CTON and his green pal Blob on their seasonal adventures, some wacky (installing an anti–Abominable Snowman alarm in the backyard for autumn), and some practical (planting a tree in the spring). They also explore some cold-weather myths in the winter (did you know that snowflakes come from outer space?), and take a road trip to the Jelly Mountains over summer break. Also included are puzzles, how-tos, and tips for readers on drawing their own comics ("When in doubt, add a moustache!").

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Colorful, zany, and packed with activities, puzzles, and amusing illustrations, this is a comic-book lookalike that children will spend hours poring over. While many of the pages are as busy as a "Where's Waldo?" puzzle, others are fairly straightforward with humorous, labeled illustrations of the various characters in CTON's world. CTON's loves include "drawing, tacos, and collecting can openers." His friend, an aptly named green blob, prefers "jelly, making jelly, and eating jelly." Throughout the book, CTON, Blob, and their human pals encourage readers to enjoy such seasonal activities as a "harvest hoedown," a tree planting, fort identification—from the dirt-hole to the wood-pile variety—and a summer road trip. No pencils are required for the activities. Fans of Captain Underpants are likely to appreciate this unusual character.—Kate Neff, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL
