Squish: Super Amoeba (Squish #1) by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm is the first in a new graphic novel series about a comic book-loving, twinkie-eating grade school Amoeba trying to find his place in the world. Squish works to deal with school, a bully, his family, and two quirky friends.

The main characters are Squish, an amoeba who daydreams about being a superhero and having courage; Pod, an amoeba who claims to be on the verge of stopping global warming; Lynwood, a hungry, vile amoeba that wants to eat Peggy; and Peggy, a gullible paramecium, who is happily excited about everything. Readers will end up learning science facts which are absorbed by reading this story which is full of micro-biological humor.

Squish's superhero daydreams are shown in gray while the actual events of his life are portrayed in green, white and black. The simple illustrations and funny, clever story will appeal to readers who enjoy the Babymouse series and The Wimpy Kid series.

For readers grades 2 to 5, bullying, graphic-novel, humor, science themes and fans of Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.
