a series of 7 graphic novels (#8 to be published in 2022) – Everybody I know that has read the books absolutely devoured the series. A total blast! But also a deep and philosophical approach to questions about identity, fitting in, being special, friendship, trust, and responsibility.

Can Hilo SURVIVE a day at school? Find out in Hilo—a laugh-out-loud, epic story of friendship! Adventure! (And the occasionally mutant space robot).”
