    23. Time for summer vacation hooray That is until Squish is forced to choose between two summer past times learning to swim, or learning ballet Neither of these sound remotely enjoyable to Squish who would rather lay around reading comic books all day But out of those choices what else is an amoeba to do Out of the Squish books this one was my favorite so far I liked that Squish was flawed, saw he was making bad choices, apologized for his actions and did better These books are candy for even the mo [...]

    24. I thought this was a fun graphic novel with a decent story and good message that came a bit close to didactic but didn t cross over my threshhold I do wonder if the authors artists consider not making the characters gendered Since amoebas don t have sexes, it seems a bit artificial and unnecessary The art was loose but still clear I liked the difference between the comics that Squish is reading and the story, although at first I was a bit confused I think it s really the silly asides that help k [...]

    25. It s summertime and Squish is going to swim camp He s not super jazzed about it, but he makes a friend Meanwhile, in Squish s comic book, Super Amoeba has landed a partner When both new friends start showing their bad sides it s up to Squish and Super Amoeba to make some tough decisions A fun, quick read, combining science, summer, and the realistic drama of friendships recommended for grades 3 5.

    26. This graphic novel is the perfect book for kids who are reluctant to read The story of an amoeba during the summer, who attends swimming camp while his friends are at ballet camp, is funny and can definitely keep the reader s attention The pictures to the comic like book, are black and white with some lime green The green in used to have parts of the illustration stand out I thought this graphic novel was enjoyable and witty the amoeba will keep you coming back for

    27. It s summer vacation and Squish finds himself having yo face his fear of swimming camp His friends are at ballet camp which is treated as extremely hardcore which was awesome but he meets a new friend named Basil, who is a fun time until he starts going too far Super Amoeba finds himself in a similar situation Once again, loved it, and I also love the acknowledgment that sometimes parents give kind of useless advice

    28. Loved reading this wonderful graphic novel Hilarious as always, love the partnership between Jennifer L Holm and Matthew Holm Also, this book feels even special since I won it in a contest from Mr Schu I loved how in this book ethics came in knowing how far is too far, why you don t need to stick with a friend if you don t agree with what what they are doing, and how comic books within comic books rock.
