Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The transition to middle school is often fraught with anxiety, and this low-key but highly enjoyable graphic novel captures its main character's search for meaningful friendships in the disco era. Sunny Rolls the Dice is the third installment in Jennifer M. Holm and Matthew Holm's Sunny series. While not the most action-packed of the bunch, it does have its fair share of funny comedy bits and revealing character moments. Sunny's quest for cool will appeal to a wide range of readers and will leave them ready for the next installment. Good-natured, charming, and a little insecure, Sunny is a bright spot on the comics scene.
