From the author of the “Pearls Before Swine” comic strip and New York Times bestselling Timmy Failure series comes a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, full-color graphic novel series about a quirky town—just right for young readers starting to read longer books!

Wendy the Wanderer has lived in Trubble Town her whole life but never had the chance to go exploring. For this reason, she thinks she was definitely misnamed. Her dad likes to know where she is to make sure she’s safe, so she’s never been anywhere on her own. Then, her dad leaves on a trip and the babysitter doesn’t reinforce all the usual rules. Or any of the usual rules! Suddenly, Wendy is free to do what she wants, and what she wants is to live up to her name…and find Trubble.

Turns out, there’s lots going on in Trubble Town. As she encounters endearingly goofy animals and hilariously hapless townsfolk, Wendy’s very first adventure takes more twists and turns than she could have ever expected. She learns some really valuable life lessons and even teaches a few of her own.

 

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I started reading graphic novels earlier this year and I can’t get enough! It’s a mix between reading a great book and watching a cartoon movie. Even though you can read through it fairly quickly (1-3 hours) you find yourself invested in the characters and the storyline.

We follow Wendy the Wanderer through the story. Wendy has a worry wart for a dad, and he never lets her do anything. He tells her time and time again that every action has a consequence, whether good or bad. One night while Wendy’s dad is out of town, she has a babysitter that is no good at watching anything. Wendy decides that now is her chance – she’s going to sneak out and explore the town. Next thing you know there is a squirrel and some sugar involved and before you know it everything has gone crazy.

I had so many laugh out loud moments reading this book – geared towards younger Middle grade readers, I was pleasantly surprised that I loved it as much as I did. If you are looking for a good laugh, check out Squirrel Do Bad!
