#BookReview: Attack of the Stuff by @JimBenton @PapercutzGN @AnnieBookReader

Synopsis: In what is described as "an 8 year old's fever dream," New York Times bestselling author introduces us to Bill Waddler. Bill is a duck who dreams of being smothered by farting snakes. He also has a special gift. He is able to hear appliances complain. Imagine what toilets would complain about. Bill doesn't need to imagine. While working as a cash-only hay seller (that doesn't accept credit cards), Bill doesn't know that he, and a very confused orange juice sales clerk, are about to save the world. If you could hear this book complain, it would be saying "where have you been all my life?" 


Rating: ★★★★★
My Review: This comic/graphic novel very funny!! I loved the pictures and the story about things talking and then everyone going crazy.  It was a fast read that I think kids, both boys and girls of all ages will fall for this one!!  It was fast paced and so FUNNY!! 


"...inventive, absurdist, fast-paced..." " Benton's dry humor is a winning mix of the surreal and the mundane..." "VERDICT: This bizarre yet sweet tale is recommended for most collections." - School Library Journal

"...absurdist interactions are fun..." "...barreling pace...""Benton's expressive signature art offers an amusing antic sensibility and accessible style that readers in this age group will appreciate." -Publishers Weekly

"Attack of the Stuff is one of the best (& oddest) graphic novels this year." "At 116 pages, he manages to craft a story that you've never seen before into a graphic novel that you won't forget." - DaddyMojo.net

"Benton's lively and outrageously imaginative graphic novel feels like a sugar rush manifested into comic panels..." "As fizzy and zippy as a Saturday-morning cartoon." - Kirkus Reviews

"It is seriously one of the funniest graphic novels I've ever read. It's one of the funniest books I've ever read." "...the humor and wit in this book is MacArthur Fellowship levels of genius." - BookedAllNight.blog
