'Li'l Rip Haywire Adventures: Escape from Camp Cooties' by Dan Thompson is a fund read for younger readers. It's a mix of text, graphic novel panels and puzzles to solve along the way.
Li'l Rip is the son of Rip Haywire, who is an amazing adventurer. Li'l Rip is too, and he has quite a few flashbacks to prove it. His dad has sent him on a new adventure, but Li'l Rip thinks there has been a mistake. He finds himself at a Summer camp for girls. Ths is not for him, so he tries to think of a plan for escape. Will he escape or will he be stuck in the most boring Summer ever waiting for his dad to come rescue him?
This book was a lot of fun. I loved the illustrations. They felt like they had a bit of a retro style to me, and they reminded me of classic animation from my childhood. I liked how the book incorporated the puzzles. There are mazes and codes and other things that fit in with the story. I hadn't seen that in a combo book and graphic novel, but it adds a nice element. I think young readers would have a blast reading this book.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
