Mal is a young boy who happens to be a genius. He's so smart he's invented a way to enable his dog, Chad, to communicate with him. These two go on adventures involving dinosaurs, pretty girls, geeky pseudo-bullies and a mother that is intolerant of Mal's extreme escapades.

While I prefer color graphic novels, the artwork for Mal and Chad is nicely done, and fully appropriate for the story. It won't take kids too long to figure out Mal and Chad's story, and then they are free to fully enjoy everything else that occurs. Mal does have a hearty crush on a classmate, so if you are grossed-out by that sort of thing (which also means you are quite young, likely), you can skip those parts without missing too much of the story.

Nicely done, recommended for the younger set, and I hope future editions are in glorious color.
