Two Second Graders Respond to Squish: Captain Disaster

I think two of the biggest Squish fans attend the school where I'm a teacher-librarian. They are WILD about Squish. Yesterday they begged me to let them read the advance reader's copy of Squish: Captain Disaster. I, of course, let them go off to a comfy corner to get lost in Squish's forthcoming adventure. Just moments after reading the final page, they recorded the following thoughts. Thank you to my wonderful second graders.

*"Squish: Captain Disaster is an awesome graphic novel.”

*"I love reading books before people can buy them in stores."

*"It taught me about giving everyone a turn. You need to play soccer for the fun of it."

*"Squish learns how to play fairly and becomes a good captain."

*"I think EVERYONE should read the Squish series."

*"My favorite part is when they practice different soccer moves. "

*"Peggy is strong because she’s the best player without legs and feet. We see that Peggy is not always like a rainbow."

*"You can learn how to draw Pod in the back of the book."

*"Squish is the best germ captain ever."

*"Pod and Squish love Twinkies."

*"Pod can harness lightning."

*"I give it 5 stars."

*"I give it 5 stars. Can I give it ten stars, Mr. Schu?"

*"We want to read Squish: Game On! right now. Do we really have to wait until May 2013?"

Look for Squish: Captain Disaster on September 25, 2012.


  1. (laughing) LOVE the "ten stars" line! That's awesome!

  2. I love your blog! I haven't been able to find a lot of blogs that have children's books on them for review. My sons and I started one called Kids Corner for Super Reading! We would love for you to check it out if you have time.
