Drew and Jot: Dueling Doodles

Welcome to another
Book Review with MyChild!
Books are critically important in our family – the saying around here goes, “I am always willing to spend money on books and Legos.” As a refresher, MyChild is 8-years-old, in second grade, reads on her own, and her current favorite books to read are the DogMan series and the Pig the Pug books.
I have had the privilege of review a couple Advance Reader Copy books through NetGalley and when I was recently searching for some new books to read, there were a few children’s books available. Of course, I could have just read these on my own and provided a review, but why not involves someone of the intended audience demographic. Here we go.
Drew and Jot: Dueling Doodles by Art Baltazar

Middle school best friends Andrew and Foz’s superhero comic adventure is all about saving the day! But what happens when Andrew’s sister gets her hands on the sketchbook and unleashes a new and powerful villain?
Fifth grade best friends Andrew and Foz are creating the perfect superhero crossover with the power of their imaginations! Andrew’s laser-eyed heroes Drew and Jot team up to fight Foz’s Doctor Danger, as the pair trade sketchbooks back and forth to create their action epic with new characters and new adventures. But what happens when Andrew’s little sister doodles in his sketchbook and changes the world of Drew and Jot forever? Can Andrew and Foz work together to save their creation?
Mom: Graphic novels and comic books are well liked in our family. We’ve read Dogman, Babysitters Club, Amulet, and several others over the past few years. This book looked like something we would enjoy.
MyChild: I loved it! My favorite part was the poop monster.
Mom: Of course, it was.
MyChild: What? It’s funny!
Mom: The story overall was very fun and cute. The idea was great that three kids work together and create one story from their individual ideas. The author did a great job in making it believable that to 10-year-olds and a five-year-old were working on this creation – at some parts it was exactly like the reality of kids getting very excited trying to get everything in the story they want. This did make some parts hard to read, but the reality aspect was definitely there.
