About the Book: The Glorkian Warrior received a phone call that was destiny-a pizza order! And it's the Glorkian Warrior's job to deliver that pizza. But where does the pizza belong? And what will he do with encounters with a giant, a spaceship, and a baby alien? And will he eat the pizza along the way?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: One of the fun things we do at our library youth services meetings is host a round robin for reader's advisory. During our graphic novel discussion, a co-worker recommended James Kochalka and I've been meaning to read one of his graphic novels ever since.
The Glorkian Warrior Delivers A Pizza is a hilarious madcap adventure. The Glorkian Warrior is a silly alien who thinks he's knows everything, but is often mistaken and finds himself in crazy situations. It's a good thing he has his trusty Super Backpack around to guide him. Along the way to deliver his pizza of destiny, he encounters a giant, spaceship, a baby alien and magic robot-all of which the Glorkian Warrior gets very confused about which adds to the humor.
The Glorkian Warrior is pretty clueless, but his ambition is endearing. His banter with his Super Backpack, who helps guide him to the correct path when the Glorkian Warrior wanders a bit, is witty and fun. ( There's tons of slapstick humor as well. The graphic novel has full color illustrations which are bright and comical. It's a quick read and great for younger graphic novel readers with only a few panels per page. The humor reminds me a bit of Captain Underpants, and I can see this graphic novel being a great read alike for fans of that series.
Full of humor and madcap adventures, The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza is a great for readers looking for graphic novel that will make them laugh.
