About the Book: Portia is the new girl in town and things aren't going very well. She's having trouble making friends and she can't keep her mind on class. When she finds a giant purple monster in her backyard, everything changes. She enlists the help of fellow classmate Jason, and with only a picture of a door, Jason, Portia and Jellaby set out on an adventure to the city to find Jellby's home.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: One of the thing I like most about my job is I get to read lots of comic books! After reading this one, Jellaby has quickly become one of my favorites. Jellaby is a sweet and funny story. Many reiewers have pointed out the Calvin and Hobbes feel. You can't help but fall in love with Jellaby and root for him and Portia. There's also a subplot about Portia's father's disappearance that makes the characters even more endearing. Jellaby is a comic book that even non-comic book readers can enjoy. The sequel, Jellaby, Monster in the City is out in April and I am eagerly awaiting it's release!
