Weird aliens, laser guns, hover-elephants, prototype space ships, comic book style, gaming and arcades, all in one small, short book. Intimidating to adults, but quite attractive to kids, the Stone Rabbit series is definitely for boys. At least, it is definitely marketed to elementary or middle school boys. The illustrations are outrageous and flamboyant: neon-colored aliens with eyestalks and tentacles, enormous text sound effects in all different shapes and colors, panels that span one or two full pages. There is seemingly little dialogue, but the text is actually quite detailed and rich in vocabulary, despite the main character's favorite word being "crudmonkeys." Words that might be too complex for readers, such as 'armada,' 'maelstrom,' and 'surmise' are defined in easy to understand terms in a vocab list on the inside of the back cover. However, the list is not comprehensive and does not include words like 'plethora' or 'suffice.' Despite the comic being intended for ages 7-10 I feel that the book is more appropriate for older readers ages 9-13.
Reason for Reading: Book 4 is a Cybils '10 nominee and as a panelist for Graphic Novels this is required reading for me. Whenever we get a series volume nominated that I haven't read the previous ones, I like to go back and read them so I can get a feel for the series as a whole. This is only if we are talking about the first 4 or less.Another dud. This one is as bad as the first with a totally unbelievable story line. Rabbit walks out the door of a restaurant and a space alien shape shifted to look like him zaps him into his space ship and off he zooms to outer space where he is captured and presumed to be this guy Plutarkian a world destroyer. Meanwhile Plutarkian is back earth disguised as rabbit, but eventually takes his true form and starts zapping through the town destroying it with the intention of destroying the earth. Lots of BAM! ZREE! and AAUGH!, too many "crudmonkey"s and not funny in the slightest, just action scene after action scene. And what's up with Disco in the title? Alliteration should at least mean something...
