Summary
"An action-packed page turner with heart!"--Dav Pilkey, author of DOG MAN

Take off on an action packed adventure with HILO Book 1! Dog Manmeets Big Nate in this hilarious New York Times bestselling graphic novel series that kids love!

BOOM! CLANG! CRASH! D.J. and Gina are totally ordinary kids. But Hilo isn't! Hilo just fell out of the sky and doesn't know where he came from, or what he's doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a BAD idea!) . . . But UH-OH, what if Hilo wasn't the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of Hilo's past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? Find out in HILO-a laugh-out-loud, epic story of friendship! Adventure! (And the occasionaly mutant space robot).

Here's what people (and robots!) are saying about Hilo!
"More giant robotic ants and people going 'Aaaah!' than in the complete works of Jane Austen"-- Neil Gaiman , bestselling author

"Every kid would love a pal like HILO, and every kid will love this book! " -- Lincoln Peirce , bestselling author of the Big Nate series

"A perfect book for any kid who ever needed a friend and then had one with superpowers fall from space." -- Seth Meyers , actor, comedian and writer

"A story that can be enjoyed by the entire family. "-- The New York Times

"A Total BLAST." -- Miami Herald

* " A wholeheartedly weird and wonderful tale of friendship, acceptance, and robots."-- Kirkus Reviews , Starred Review

* "A must-have."-- School Library Journal , Starred Review



* "A must-have." -- School Library Journal, Starred Review

"A story that can be enjoyed by the entire family ." -- The New York Times

"My students are obsessed with this series. OBSESSED!" --Colby Sharp, teacher, blogger, and co-founder of Nerdy Bookclub
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "D. J. is the only ordinary person in his family. The one special thing about him was his friendship with Gina, but then she moved away. When a boy named Hilo mysteriously crashes to earth with no memory of who he is or where he came from, and gigantic alien monsters start attacking, D. J. finds his life becoming a lot more extraordinary. Winick, the celebrated creator of Pedro & Me (2000), turns his focus to kids' comics in this fun sci-fi adventure. There are somber bits D. J.'s feelings of inadequacy, Hilo's fractured memories of battle but, overall, the tone is cheerful and exciting. Readers will love the interactions between D. J. and Hilo, and all the running around after various monsters makes for a fast read that stays age-appropriate. The art is colorful and detailed, without being cluttered, and D. J.'s world is realistic, which makes the interactions with out-of-this-world Hilo all the more amusing. This is a great addition to graphic novel collections that should have a broad appeal.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "While D.J. Lim's friends and family are all "awesome at something," the 10-year-old sees himself as average and boring. That's until Hilo, a boy with superpowers, crash lands on planet Earth, making D.J.'s life anything but dull. Although Hilo can fly and shoot lasers from his hands, he's clueless when it comes to normal things like food and clothing, forcing D.J. to look after the shaggy-haired dynamo like he would a puppy. Hilo can't recall where he came from, but his memories slowly return as he, D.J., and D.J.'s friend Gina contend with giant robotic insects that herald something more sinister. Winick keeps the action flowing while giving his characters authentic motivations and including numerous jokes and recurring gags (Hilo's favorite human greeting is the terrified "Aaahh!" he and D.J. exchanged when they met). Though Winick's comic-strip lookalike cartoons are a tad generic, he creates a rousing adventure with a diverse cast (D.J.'s family is of Asian descent, while Gina's is African-American), and a cliffhanger ending should leave readers anticipating the next book, due in spring 2016.
