Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont buy it no matter what It had no story it just started killing all the charactors off and how it ended "to be continued" is so stupid it was 200 page comic book he could of made it a longer book he just wanted more money but i bet he made less money. I dont think he even made a second book and if he did i garantee you its crappy too. And the title the book sais "nnewts" but the official title is "escape from te lizzarks" why does it have 2 titles? I almost want to refund my money on kobo if i could. Anthe pictures arnt even good i was hoping they would make up for the story. It sucked!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Bad Island:* "A clever, old-fashioned adventure with some modern twists and a light-hearted tone, this, like TenNapel's previous work, is not to be missed." -Booklist, starred reviewPraise for Cardboard:* "An exceptionally seamless blend of action and philosophy, two elements that usually do not mix easily; TenNapel handles this masterfully. Utterly brilliant." -Kirkus, starred reviewPraise for Ghostopolis:* "TenNapel's colorful illustrations are filled with energy and life." -School Library Journal, starred reviewPraise for Tommysaurus Rex:"It's a premise worthy of a loony Saturday morning cartoon, complete with bulgy-eyed characters that nearly bounce off the full-color pages, but underlying the fun is a potent and affecting story about facing death and growing up." -Publishers Weekly
