Introducing HILO--a funny, action-packed, full-color new middle-grade graphic novel series that Bone creator Jeff Smith calls "delightful." D.J. and his friend Gina are totally normal kids. But that was before a mysterious boy came crashing down from the sky! Hilo doesn't know where he came from, or what he's doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a bad idea!) . . . But what if Hilo wasn't the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of his past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? And are D.J. and Gina ready to save the world? HILO is Calvin and Hobbes meets Big Nate and is just right for fans of Bone and comic books as well as laugh-out-loud school adventures like Jedi Academy and Wimpy Kid! Praise for HILO "Every kid would love a pal like HILO, and every kid will love this book !"-- Lincoln Peirce , bestselling author of the Big Nate series "HILO is delightful, silly, tender, and most importantly: funny. " -- Jeff Smith , bestselling author of the Bone series "HILO is loads of slapstick fun with a touch of tenderness that kids will love ."-- Dan Santat , Caldecott Medal Winner " High energy and HILARIOUS ! "--Gene Luen Yang, winner of the Printz and Eisner Awards, two time National Book Award Finalist "A perfect book for any kid who ever needed a friend and then had one with superpowers fall from space." -- Seth Meyers , actor, comedian and writer
