Holm, Jennifer L and Holm, Matthew Squish: Captain Disaster (Book #4) 96 pgs. Random House Books for Young Readers, 2012. $6.99. (Rating: G)
Squish is captain of the soccer time and is in a quandary about winning vs losing. He knows how to win, and his team wins, but not everyone is happy –his teammates start to quit! How can Squish help his team, the Waterfleas, to victory without a team?!
For me this type of graphic novel is in limbo. It’s totally age appropriate but the art and story is just kind of blah. If you are trying to cultivate a true love and appreciation for graphic novels in your library –this isn't the way to go. If you want a book that is going to see a ton of circulation –well this is right up there with Captain Underpants.
