it was amazing

A charming story about a 7-year-old boy who's ready to take over the world, except that he's convinced there's something seriously wrong with his baby sister... and he's right. About a third of the way through, the story takes a sharp turn from endearingly quirky to flat-out awesome and never looks back. And Gene Luen Yang's artwork, as always, gets a wealth of expression out of a simple line. This is a real treat.

Marjorie Ingall can my graphic-novel-loving eight-year-old read it? i LOVED american-born chinese, but i don't think josie is quite old enough for that one yet.

Ron I think it would be just fine for a precocious eight-year-old. There are a few big vocabulary words, but nothing that should set off parents' alarms.

Marjorie Ingall ron, meant to tell you that josie LOVED prime baby. she's read it three times now. (it's resonant for her -- she's got a little sister AND she just learned about prime numbers this year!) big hit. thanks.
