By Terry Crews and Cory Thomas
Middle Grade Graphic Novel
Little Brown Books for Young Readers
(November 8, 2022)
Young Terry Crews has a Big Dream Plan: He wants to become a MULTIHYPHENATE. That means he wants to be an artist. And a football player. And a musician. And maybe a NASA scientist, too! OK, maybe it’s ambitious, but his parents worked hard so he could go to a new school—Rock City Academy, a prestigious institution (read: rich kids go there) where he’s sure he can make his mark at the talent show. He plans an elaborate performance with his new friends, Rani, a passionate engineer, and Xander, a shy kid with a head like an encyclopedia.
Along the way, Terry’s plan is threatened by his grades, which slip below Mom-and-Dad-approved levels, as well as the schemes of the school’s football star, Rick, who won’t stop until Terry quits the talent show altogether. No matter what challenges he faces, though, Terry knows that he always has his crew to back him up.
I have been a fan of Terry Crews for as long as I can remember. So when I seen he wrote a book I HAD to read it. It did not disappoint. If you’ve watched Terry Crews on TV you know he feels very strongly about bullying. This book is so inspirational and fits the Terry Crews image to a T! I enjoyed watching Terry follow his dreams in this book, no matter that they might have seemed over the top, he never gave up. The story flowed beautifully and the illustrations are spot on. Huge fan!
I think added the suggested age group to this book is a disservice to everyone not in that group. This book can be inspirational to everyone – no matter age, race or gender. Terry Crews is a role model that so many kids need in their life. I’m so happy to have had the chance to not only read this book, but I’ll be able to share it with my son when he gets older.
