Middleschool Monday: Teen Boat by Dave Roman and John Green

Teen Boat  by Dave Roman and John Green

I was going to write this post a while ago, but I had the book with me while I was on the reference desk and a seventh grade guy saw it and checked it out. Which tells you a little something about this graphic novel.

Our fearless superhero is Teen Boat, called TB for short. And he has the incredible superpower of being able to transform into a boat at a moments notice (or if he gets wet). Totally helpful if bad guys are about to throw the girl of his dreams into the ocean. Less helpful if the water fountain at school splashes on him between math and lunch.

This is a truly weird and funny book. It's full of pop culture references and also slap-stick comedy. If you happen to like absurd and bizarre humor, you are going to get a kick out of this book.
