Zig and Wikki in Something Ate My Homeworkby Nadja Spiegelman
Synopses & Reviews
“Spiegelman weaves the science facts into the breezy narrative cleverly and painlessly, and the art...support[s] both the educational elements and the zingy story.” – Booklist
Zig and Wikki land on a planet full of strange creatures like flies, frogs, and raccoons, just when it seems to be lunchtime!
In their hilarious search for a pet, two friends, imagined by Nadja Spiegelman and Trade Loeffler, go on adventures that are out of this world. Young readers learn about nature in our world thanks to the fascinating Wikki’s Fun Facts woven into every twist of the exciting plot. This innovative science-based early reader comic book, filled with bugs and hugs, is sure to please both boys and girls.
"While Zig (a young alien child) and Wikki (a walking computer) are out flying their spaceship, Zig gets a call from his teacher reminding him that his homework is late, again. Zig must find a pet for the class zoo, and his teacher warns him to not take Wikki with him since the two of them always get into mischief. Despite that, the two friends land on planet Earth in search of a pet. During their adventure, they learn about how the food chain operates, until Zig accidentally uses his shrink ray on Wikki instead of a raccoon. Each time they find a potential pet, Wikki's built-in computer screen flashes with a photographed image of the animal, as the book mixes appealing cartooning with informational 'Wikki's Fun Facts' about animals. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
