Product Description


New York Times:
"An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy."

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:
* "Hilarious. If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does."
The Bulletin:
"A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure."

HASH(0xb51ccbb8) out of 5 stars Squish Returns with More Life Lessons Jan. 14 2012
By A. Silverstone - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Following on the heels of Squish #1: Super Amoeba, Squish returns in Brave New Pond. This graphic novel features amoebas, rotifers, algae and other micro-organisms who live in a world that looks suspiciously like our own. The brother-sister team of Jennifer and Matt Holm use single-celled organisms as stand-ins for the situations that children find themselves in. So, rather than looking like a morality tale, we get an entertaining story for kids. This book describes the challenges of wanting to be popular and fit in, while still being true to one's friends. To help guide Squish, the Holms continue the comic book within a graphic novel featuring Squish's idol Super Amoeba (so far nameless). Also, they add, as before, a little science experiment at the end of the book. This time, how to make your own slime with simple household ingredients.

Jennifer L. Holm, Squish, vol. 2: Brave New Pond (Random House, 2011)

I was a pretty big fan of Super Amoeba!, the first Squish book, so it was a foregone conclusion I'd be picking up vol. 2. Unfortunately, life got in the way, and it took me over a year after its release to get around to it. This one is almost as much fun as the first, though the Holms decided to go a little lighter on the science in this volume (I thought that to its detriment, your mileage may vary) and spend a little more time on the social aspects of the characters. It's still a quick, fun read, and I can still heartily recommend this series. Now I've gotta get caught up myself... *** ½
HASH(0xb51cf204) out of 5 stars Great book Nov. 29 2015

Format: Paperback
I like this book cause it talks about what kids and students do at school to be popular at school. So that says popularity sometime break friends apart. In the book the amoeba wants to sit at the cool table and he did, but the brothers(coolest kids) try to make him prank his friend. but the amoeba doesn't prank his friends cause they are more important than being the coolest kid in school. I love these kind of books cause they really talk about real life problems. # I GOT TO READ MORE
HASH(0xb51cf3c0) out of 5 stars Watch out Babymouse, Squish is here! Oct. 13 2012
By SusanB - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your child is a Babymouse fan, it's time to meet Squish! Although my boys love Babymouse, too, Squish is a bit more boy oriented (the main character and his best friend are amoebaes). It's definitely NOT a science text, but it does introduce them to some quirky microorganisms. Nothing wrong with adding amoeba, paramecium, planaria, slime mold and a few other terms to their vocabulary while they're enjoying a good story! We've enjoyed all four books so far from this series.

He finished it in no time and asked for the next one. Only criticism is that it is heavy on pictures and light on words (not surprising for a comic-style book, just not sure how much it counts as actual reading vs. other chapter books).
