Probably my favorite of those recent cartoons based on super-heroes book for kids I read. This one also uses the cartoon style, but it uses the doodle style and the dairy as well. Mixed of style to present us the Swamp Thing has a teen. The various styles allow the book to present more content and keep the reader more into it, more dynamic. It has humor, cool artwork and a good enough story. Better than expected after reading Superman of Smallville and DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High.

"I liked the football parts. Those parts weren't scary. The Big Swamp Thing and the Little Swamp Thing was so cool. I want to turn into a Big Swap Thing. The Rat was scary." -Conley, age 4

I received this ARC from School Library Journal in return for an honest review.

I enjoyed sharing Swamp Kid with my kids, they are both under that target age group of 8-12 but we still enjoyed reading it together as a family. This was only the second graphic novel I have shared with them, the first being a traditional super hero. It was nice to introduce a theme about embracing your own differences and being your own hero. The science behind "eating" sunlight yielded a fun plant life discussion

Well, I ended up liking this read a lot more than I first thought. With Swamp Thing never floating my boat I thought a 'Diary of a Swampy Kid' reboot/origins story, with little humour, would not work. But you know what? It did. (Although I still think some of the science stuff, where his sidekick finds a DNA strand or something with a household microscope, is definitely on the not-gonna-work side.) It's not an earth-shattering read, but for this target audience it's engaging, and let's face it, ...more

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

The last couple of years it has been increasingly difficult to find a good read for boys. Swamp Kid delivers. It's funny, has great illustrations, and with only a paragraph or two per page is not intimidating for those struggling to read. We will definitely be buying this book for our library...I already know a few fellas who would love to check it out!
