Format: Paperback

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3

Genre:  Science Fiction/Horror

What did you like about the book? Zim is an alien from planet Irk who, with their robot dog Gir, wants to take over the world. All plots end in failure, but not for lack of trying. Lots of gross-out incidentals, including a huge variety of bodily fluids of all colors and consistencies. Based on the animated TV series from Nickelodeon.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Offer this to kids age 9 and up who have graduated from Captain Underpants and who want their gross-out humor with a touch of extraterrestrial intrigue.

Who should buy this book? Public libraries with large graphic novel readership

Where would you shelve it ? Graphic novels

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library, Arlington, MA
