    Super cute collection of short bits by the monsters in the kids GN world. Especially notable for the myriad Raina Telgemeier and Babymouse completists. Telgemeier's selection is about a D&D game, so that's cool. And this is the first time I've actually read a Babymouse story myself (I know, I know). It's great as a sampler, especially if you're trying to broaden your JGN knowledge very quickly. Honestly, the standout for me was from Dan Santat, particularly because people just announced th Super cute collection of short bits by the monsters in the kids GN world.

    Fun anthology of short stories by popular children's graphic novelists. I've read all these authors before and found it a delight to read these stories. Some are one-off shorts while others are further adventures of favourite characters such as Baby Mouse and Lunchroom Lady. The stories are all held together by the common theme of recess; with recess featuring prominently in some and and simply in passing in others.

I went into each one looking forward to the treat and was not disappointed, however, if the reader has not read any of these authors these stories are bound to have you searching for their other books. Good Show! And the back of the book assures us that a sequel is in the works. Yeah!

    Funny, of course, but also filled with some interesting and subtle messages about growing up and just being a kid. This is jam-packed with heavy-hitting graphic novel writers for kids. Raina Telegemeier (Smile and Drama), Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants), Jennifer Holme (Babymouse) and more! There's some cool interlude-style comedy between the comics from Lunch Lady and Babymouse that readers will enjoy, and there are some short author and illustrator bios in the back for kids to mull over.

    The book Comics Squad: Recess is about all of these diffrent comics that are put together in one book. One of the comics is about a club that calls themselfs the Super Secret Ninga Club and, a little boy who wants to join. Over winter break he trains hard but, when it's back to school the Super Secret Ninga Club doesn't play ningas anymore they all play kickball. There are so many more comics in that book. I reccomend this book for anyone who like a little laugh and some cool comics.

    I liked this book, It has a bunch of short comics great for just trying some comics out. I also liked it because I got to read some comics I had never read before. I would recommend this to someone else as a book to pass the time.

    Last year around this same time I fell into a bit of a reading slump (yes, it happens to everyone) and I picked up a little comics selection called Comics Squad: Detention hoping that it would revive me. I'm happy to say that it did the trick. Thinking lightning might strike twice, I delved into Comics Squad: Recess! by Jennifer L. Holm, Jarrett J.

I'm happy to say that it did the trick. Thinking lightning might strike twice, I delved into Comics Squad: Recess! by Jennifer L. Holm, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Dan Santat, & Raina Telgemeier which is another book from this collection. This book explores the theme of recess with the authors/illustrators charged with coming up with stories which somehow incorporated this theme. (Some accomplished this feat more successfully than others as a few barely mentioned recess at all.) I especially enjoyed the last 2 stories both visually and from a narrative standpoint. (If you're curious, the two stories are "300 Words" by Dan Santat which was a love story and "The Rainy Day Monitor" by Raina Telgemeier & Dave Roman which was about a RPG kickball game.) I like recommending this series to burgeoning graphic novel/comics fans since it contains a variety of storytelling and art styles to give them a better idea of what they might like. This is a great idea for anyone, regardless of age, who might be interested in sampling different writers and illustrators. 8/10 overall and certainly wouldn't say no to reading more from this series (or from the two artists mentioned).

Daryl’s struggles to become a super secret ninja—only to have the fad fadeaway as they are wont to do—made me laugh out loud. Yang’s style is neat, organized and filled with great vocabulary.

    This was a cute compilation of graphic novellas from some of my favorite authors - with the theme of recess. Gene Luen Yang's Super Secret Ninja Club story was by far my favorite. It just had the essence of all his other graphic novels. Raina Telgemeier's story about kickball RPG-style was incredible. It was so much fun and the poke at the former VP made me giggle. You'll see what I mean when you read it (it's one of those things that kids may not get, but adult definitely will).

    The kid picked this up at the school library and read it. Then told me to read it as it has some of our favorite graphic novel artists featured. This book is a great little collection of Muni comics from different sources. David Pilkey! Dan Santat! Raina Telgemeier! Dave Roman! Ursula Vernon! Gene Leun Yang! Eric wright!

    Not every story was 5 out of 5 stars, but there were some pretty amazing short stories in this comic. I loved the last one that had the kids playing around of D&D for recess since they couldn't go outside and have a actual kickball game. It's a fun collection of stories by different artist and authors. It would be a huge hit with my Middle Schoolers.

    This graphic novel includes eight stories around the theme of recess. This book and the stories inside are very focused on comedy and parody. There are ninjas, talking squirrels and cupcakes, and even aliens. This wasn't my favorite book, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. Maybe it is the fact that I'm not used to reading this genre, but I would recommend it to older elementary school kids.

    I normally really enjoy some of these author/illustrators, but I didn't like this one. Maybe it was the short format, but I felt like the stories weren't nearly as well-written as these authors' full length graphic novels.

    This book is a compilation of several comics. I suspect it would be much more enjoyable if you were already familiar with most of those comics. The only one I knew was Peanuts, and it wasn't Peanuts as I knew it.

When I heard about this book and the people involved with it, it seemed like such a natural idea. I mean recess is a topic that all kids love and these authors/illustrators do such a great job with their works. I was eager to see the end result. I was not disappointed in the least. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories and children undoubtedly will as well. Here's a bit more information about each of the stories in the book: Gene Yang: Daryl wants to join the recess Super-Secret Ninja Club, but can he develop the skills over the winter holidays that will allow him to be accepted? Dav Pilkey: Can the Dogman save books and reading from the nefarious plots of Petey the cat who desires to make the world stupid by destroying reading? Jarrett Krosoczka: Can Betty survive Pizza Day with Lunch Lady home sick? Perhaps with the help of the Pizzatron 2000 or maybe not. Ursula Vernon: Scratch the squirrel reluctantly follows his friend Squeak to what Squeak claims is a magic acorn. After being wrong over 300 times, Squeak can't possibly be right, can he? Jennifer Holm & Matthew Holm: Can Babymouse find a way to follow the rules and make it out to recess before the week is over? Eric Wight: Can Jiminy Sprinkles (a cupcake) make friends at his new school? Especially with the green vegetables who go out of their way to be mean to everyone else? Maybe with a new kind of recess game. Dan Santat: Eddie has forgotten a school assignment and wants to find someone's homework to copy. Will Sophie be willing, even after he puked on her during the class play? Dave Roman & Raina Telgemeier: Sonja and Josh are eager for a kickball rematch but the rain forces them to stay inside with the rainy day monitor, who just may prove to more than a 'boring' babysitter. A fun collection that kids are sure to love. I look forward to future collections.

    Comics Squad is a compilation of several comic stories written by a series of authors. The stories range from a secret ninja club to food playing games on the play ground. There is really no relationship to the stories except some of them have the kids (or food) playing out at recess. I really didn't like this book. The pictures were all in orange and gray which was unappealing to me, maybe not to a young boy, but I didn't like it. I also didn't like some of the stories' messages.

I thought some of them were kind of weird and not too good. I guess if I were to use this book in a classroom it would be to recommend to young boys who like graphic novels. It is a super easy read so it would give them something easy if they are having trouble reading and help encourage their imagination. Other than that, I would not use it in the classroom.
