A cute, short GN with a fun heroine and awesome cast of supporting characters.

Zita pushes a button (no!) and her friend gets kidnapped into space. After a momentary freak out, Zita follows. She accumulates a motley crew to help save her friend and, incidentally, save the day, too. I look forward to the rest of the series.

This book is science fiction. I would use this book as an IR. This book is set up in a comic style with a short text on each page which can appeal to students that like the comic format. Zita's friend gets abducted by aliens and it is her duty to rescue her in a strange planet with huge animals such as dinosaur size rats. 😅

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This MG sci-fi graphic novel was exactly what I needed. It is SO precious and cute, and I already rushed to put the next two volumes on hold!

It warms my heart to see how much my 9-year-old great-niece loves the book I gave her.

Lindy @saresmoore She‘s a sweetheart of a child. She has Moebius Syndrome, which includes facial paralysis and has necessitated at least yearly medical visits to Edmonton, so I see her pretty often even though she lives 2,300 km away. 1y

My daughter and I just finished reading this together. It was a big hit for both of us. Zita is a sassy, loyal, relatable heroine and her adventure is populated by some of the best not-humans I‘ve read in a long time (we especially love Strong Strong). “Mommy, this one gets five thumbs up.” I agree.

Zita accidentally sends her friend to space and goes herself to save him. What follows is a fun but standard adventure story. She must defeat the evil and collects a rag-tag group of robots and space creatures, some of questionable morals, along the way.

Entertaining but I think I prefer the Cleopatra in Space series.

emtobiasz Agreed-- on both the review and the preference for Cleopatra! 2y

Is Ben Hatke trying to channel Spirited Away?

Fabulous inscription:

“There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there.

The other is to walk round the whole world till we come back to the same place.”

Vol 1-3. Here's a charming and imaginative one. Zita and her friend Joseph get sucked into space and meet a bunch of strange and sometimes dangerous characters. Great for kids. The last one in the series is definitely the darkest. It's the drawings and odd ball characters in this that really shine.

bronwenr What a great drawing. 3y

A fun space adventure. Zita and her friend Joseph get sucked into a dimensional portal and are soon separated. The aliens want Joseph to be their savior and destroy the asteroid, and all Zita wants to do is save him and get home. This was a fun adventure, and I am happy there are 2 more.
#beatthebacklist #arthur Joseph and Piper are both tinkerers throughout this series. It is essential to survive

Ben Hatke's writing & art combine perfectly to tell/show Zita's amazing adventures to save her friend Joseph. Zita is cute and even a little badass. I love how well Ben conveys emotion in his characters. The story itself is simple & straightforward, but that's part of its charm. The worldbuilding is great, and I enjoy how Ben fits it all together to help Zita rescue Joseph and save the world. #GraphicNovel #BenHatke #Zita #ZitaTheSpacegirl #SciFi

Decided to go for something completely different for my next read. Going off list from Eclectic Readers Podcast MadLibs Reading Challenge, but I've had Zita in my TBR since going to Ben Hatke's book signing at Fountain Bookstore this past summer. Ben has a charming sense of timing for the humor in his writing and art. He's made me laugh several times already. #Zita #ZitaTheSpacegirl #GraphicNovel #ChildrensLit #artwork #BenHatke #GoodNews #BadNews

BiblioNyan This sounds very interesting! 3y
BillBlume @Bibli0.Nyan Ben has a wonderful and innocent imagination that's a lot of fun, no matter the age of the reader. He's also a very nice guy. Going to his book signing last year was an impulse decision, and so glad I went. 3y

Happy with my format percentages this year! Normally it's at least 60% audiobooks. 😅

My goals for 2016 were:
1) read 120 books
2) read more graphic novels and comics (Reached 26% of my total. Quite happy with that)
3) read more nonfiction (22% not overly happy with that, but I think that's better than last year)

Authors
Women 60%
Men 40%

How did your reading goals go? Do you have any for this year?

Happy New Year, Litsians!

WarpedSweetness Heh, my reading goals for 2016 were basically non-existent. I've got goals this year though! Lol Happy New Year! 3y
Gillyreads I actually managed most of them except for a few of the Read Harder tasks. Quite pleased with myself 😊 3y
meltedsquirrel I read 130 but seeing your chart makes me really curious about my format stats. I think audiobooks is a giant slice of them. 3y
MrBook Nice spread! 😎👌🏻 3y

5⭐️ A very cute story. Really quick, but not lacking in originality and uniqueness. Picked this one up on a whim when noticing how many checkouts this one has gotten in the children's GN section compared to when it was shelved as Sci Fi not long ago.

My new job has me very busy reading professional texts so my own reading came to a screeching halt, but I am still reading with my kiddos. Zita was a hit with a great story and great graphics. We'll be reading more in this series.
