Jak and the Magic Nano-beans: A Graphic Novel

by Carl Bowen
Illustrated by Omar Lozano

Jak and her robotic servant, Cow, are in a pickle; Mom wants Jak to sell Cow for scrap, but Cow and Jak have become best friends. So instead of selling the rusty old robot for spare change, Jak strikes a bargain with the scrap collector: if Jak and Cow can visit the Cloud Kingdom via the Space Elevator and get hold of some magic nano-beans, Jak can keep Cow safe and sound. But what they find in space is anything but safe--and its sounds are far from soothing . . .

Booklist - Kat Kan

"The color scheme of the cartoonish, cinematic panels helps cultivate a strong sense of location, with dusty tones on Earth and florescent hues in space. Jak and CDW make a dynamic team in this action-packed tale. Kids who love Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens should like Jak, too." - Booklist

SLJ's Good Comics for Kids - Brigid Alverson

"The art in all these books is outstanding. . . .While the stories are a far cry from the traditional versions, the books are entertaining in their own right, with diverse casts of characters, girls who make their own adventures, and plenty of goofy, supernatural fun." - SLJ's Good Comics for Kids
