As a little girl I remember reading comics with my Dad every Sunday--it was the highlight of my weekend and each weekend you could find us all reading them--or arguing who gets to read them first. Comics were a a huge part of my childhood--and when we buy the Sunday paper I still go searching for the comics.
I recently got the opportunity to review Lunar Antics Boy I'd Hate to be Made Out of That Stuff! by Robert Walters. It's hilarious--I was cracking up a lot while reading this book. The Lunar Antics players are a group of space aliens who are going through things that humans go through. They come to Earth to live with Professor Jones who is a a music professor. He borrows a radio telescope and ends up with the four aliens in his home.
Mr. Walters got the idea to begin Lunar Antics from seeing that there were virtually no other comic strips about aliens--so why not write one? He will keep his strips and go back in a month to see if he still finds them funny. I love this about him--how often have I found myself laughing at something and then later wondering why I ever thought it was funny. He has said that humor does not come easily for him--but after reading the book I can assure him that I find him and his characters hilarious!
My favorite strips in the book so far would be where the aliens teach the cat to speak, haha! As a cat lover & owner I can relate to a cat's personality. So with the cat now talking? I was dying laughing! I could only imagine if my cat, Boo, could speak...ha!
If you are interested in purchasing his book Lunar Antics Presents Boy, I'd Hate to be Made Out of That Stuff! it is available online at Amazon. It has received 5 out of 5 stars on their ratings--it's seriously that funny!
A huge thank you to Mr. Walters for the opportunity to review his book. Leo and I loved it! We received one copy to review. No other compensation was given.
