Explores positive ways to deal with moving, missing a best friend, surviving a new school, and making new friends.
Positive Role Models
Kit is always open to learning from others. He has his good and bad days, but with a little help from his friends or his parents, he always sees the bright side of things. Losing friends and being embarrassed can be hard on a kid, but Kit learns that being positive and trying your best will definitely turn the situation around.
Violence & Scariness
On Kit's first day of school in his new town, he meets Devon the Bully Comedian on the bus. Devon pairs put-downs with really bad jokes. However, with some deep thought, Kit figures out a way to make Devon a friend instead of an enemy.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this this super cute comic book series would be great for lovers of Babymouse. Kit Feeny is a great role model who is learning some tough lessons that younger readers will really identify with. Moving away, losing old friends, and feeling bad about not having enough money for Mom's birthday present are all things that kids go through; Kit shows readers how to handle those hard situations with head held high.
Is It Any Good?
Fans of Babymouse will love this series too. Like Babymouse, Kit's a conscientious kid learning lots of lessons. Moving away from a friend and feeling embarrassed are situations that aren't easy to go through, but kids can learn, through Kit, that staying positive and having a willingness to listen to others can make the outcome a lot easier to handle. Kit handles his problems with humor and positivity -- something kids can definitely learn from.
Michael Townsend's illustrations are just as cute as Kit himself. The limited use of color makes Kit stand out all the more and the panels are very easy to follow. Kit's myriad emotions are well shown -- readers can definitely tell what Kit is feeling.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
