The emotional undercurrents are definitely less nuanced here than in, for instance, Barbara Jean Hicks’ Jitterbug Jam, illustrated by Alexis Deacon (2005), but so what, when there are zombies, a Santa-eating house, buckets of puke, and many like delicacies to savor?

Synopsis

Simone is a sweet, rosy-cheeked little girl. Morris is a green, googly-eyed monster. When Simone enters Morris’s world, she strikes terror in monsters’ hearts! Here, the rules are turned upside down—flowers, puppies, and good behavior are the stuff of nightmares, and all things scary and icky are adored.

Each page in this comics collection tells a different mini-story featuring Simone and Morris in four to six panels. Despite (and often because of) their differences, they have hilarious adventures together. Bold, vibrant cartoon art and speech bubbles with plenty of sound effects make punchlines simple to grasp. Single-page stories feature various seasons, holidays, activities, sports, and school, making this a fun, relatable pick for emergent readers seeking an entry point to graphic novels.
