Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

I am always on the hunt for good Graphic Novels. Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke is one such offering. In this story, Zita and her friend find a button in a pit with a crashed meteoroid. They wrestle over it, and the result is that a portal opens and a creature reaches through and steals Joseph. Zita has to find a way to save him.

If your child likes the Legend of Zelda stories, they will probably like this book. The art work is descriptive and helps move the story along. I also like the font used in this book. Often the fonts in graphic novels are hard to read, but his font is great.

Zita learns, grows, and becomes a better friend in this book. The space creatures are creative and work well with the story. Some of them remind me of the creatures in the new Zelda, Breath of the Wild. Yes, I am a Legend of Zelda nerd.

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit.
