Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Margaret Orto
Kit Feeny, an appealing cross between a cute, anthropomorphic animal and a Teletubbie, moves far away from his best friend, Arnold. The two friends' attempt to stow Arnold away in a box on the moving van fails, and Kit realizes he will have to go it alone in his new home. He has the bright idea to find a replacement Arnold. On the first day of school, however, rather than finding a replacement, he instead overlooks a potential new friend and attracts the attention of the school bully. Through some ingenious thinking and planning, and a realization that Arnold is irreplaceable, Kit eventually figures out how to set things straight. In the end, he gains two new friends as well as maintains his friendship with Arnold. With his quirky sense of humor and creative problem solving, Kit is sure to appeal to a young comic book audience. His signature phrase, "stupidly awesome" is repeated throughout providing a catchy refrain to his actions and further illustrates his character. His twin sisters, April and Bonnie, who antagonize Kit at every turn, provide further comic interest. The two-color illustrations are simple yet charming and complement the entertaining text. This first in a series of "Kit Feeny" books is a winning package that will have readers looking forward to more. Reviewer: Margaret Orto
School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—Kit Feeny is moving to the city and leaving his friend Arnold behind. The adjustment to a new school and home is difficult for the child, so he comes up with a plan: to get a Replacement Arnold. Trying to find one isn't easy (no one seems to like making cheeseball sculptures as much as he and Arnold do), and he catches the eye of "Devon the Bully Comedian." Now Kit must devise another plan to solve the "Devon problem" and get a new best friend. Kit is a likable character and his family and friends (especially his fashion-conscious twin sisters) are also enjoyable. The story teaches about friendship and getting along through Kit's schemes and his relationships. The art is slightly lacking in detail and expression, and the backgrounds are very plain. However, Kit's pencil sketch of "The Great Gummy Fish Disaster" is a creative break from the rest of the story. Kit's adventures will appeal to young graphic-novel readers.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
Kirkus Reviews
Kit Feeny and Arnold are best friends. They love graphic novels (they write their own) and stupidawesome adventures (like selling all their clothes to get money for pizza because they spent all the money they HAD on superballs). Now Kit has to move. He smuggles Arnold onto the moving truck, but their parents aren't big fans of that solution. Kit sets off to find a Replacement Arnold with a spiffy quiz ("Raise your hand if you like ninja fishing!"), but he ends up on Devon the Bully Comedian's hit list. When being a Lonesome Hobo doesn't work out for him, he devises a plan that may just solve all his problems. Readers will hope that this, the first Kit Feeny adventure, is the first of many (Kit Feeny: The Ugly Necklace [9780375856150;])
