Squish #5: Game On!
Luckily, his teacher understands and allows him to write a comic on the story to boost his grade. Squish is an entertaining read for young readers.
The vocabulary is simple, and there are not too many words on a page. However, some of the themes are a little complex. I would keep this book in a classroom for third graders and up. The book is personal and makes reader feel like Squish is speaking to and interacting with them. It also includes parts where it references specific science concepts such as mitosis and explains them. I think that this book is a good introduction to science, as well a comics and graphic novels.
Many students will be able to relate to and enjoy this book. Nov 23, Rachel rated it liked it. I love how the Super Amoeba comic that Squish reads is related to his current dilemma. It was funny that he became obsessed with the "Mitosis" game MORE than a comic con - which had to laugh since the writers made a cameo within their own book. Sep 20, Madison Dragonas rated it it was amazing. This was a great graphic novel. It talked about the importance of finishing your schoolwork before playing videogames. It also talked about what could happen if a person chooses to put their videogames before their schoolwork, and how they could fall behind.

So good that you will be shocked. May 04, Crystal rated it really liked it Shelves: middle-grade , graphic-novels. Before I even got to the story, a smile broke out on my face. Colby Sharp a Nerdybookclub member must have flipped when he saw his name on the dedication page. He is a huge Babymouse and Squish fan and has promoted these books through Twitter, his blog and in his classroom.
As for the story, the Holm duo has hit on a theme that many readers will relate to easily: video game obsession. It is so difficult to se Before I even got to the story, a smile broke out on my face. It is so difficult to set aside a game when it is all shiny and new. That is especially true when there is a bit of competition with everyone else around you. Squish is such a great character because though he is an amoeba, he is still a complicated being with many good qualities and a healthy dose of flaws such as obsessing over a game to the detriment of all else.
His imperfections, of course, are a large part of his appeal. There is so much more going on though besides this single storyline. As always, Super Amoeba comics make an appearance with a lesson to be learned. There are always many jokes all along the way such as those related to Squish's literature assignment -- Moby Dick with his quote, "Call me Squishmael. My students have loved every single volume of Squish and I believe they will fall for this one too.
There is plenty of humor for all of them with a dash of teaching and a whole lot of fun.

Squish #5: Game On!
This is the fifth book in the Squish series by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm. Our youngest devoured the Babymouse series in no time and while we're waiting for the next book in that series, she decided she wanted to try out this one. I've found that these stories aren't nearly as compelling or charming as the Babymouse ones.
In both series, the main character learns a moral lesson and the stories are all entertaining; I just like the "Babymouse" characters better. But our youngest really likes Squish, and she's e This is the fifth book in the Squish series by Jennifer L. But our youngest really likes Squish, and she's eager to read more of the books in this series.
One good aspect of the story is that Squish learns about the addictive nature of video games and how playing too much can affect his school performance. The illustrations are good and since it's a graphic novel, they tell most of the story along with the dialogue. But once again, they just don't have the charm of the girl in pink. I guess the one thing that it's got going for it is likely to appeal more to boys. Jul 09, Ms.

Yingling rated it liked it. Squish certainly loves to read comic books about Super Amoeba, but when his friends Peggy and Pod get him hooked on the video game Meitosis,Squish is so determined to make it to the next level that he doesn't care about anything else. He doesn't do his book report on Moby Dick, he doesn't sleep, and he doesn't even care about going to the comic convention with his dad!

Evenutally, Squish realizes that the game isn't that exciting, and that he really needs to pay attention to other things in his life. Strengths: Snarky humor that appeals to both kids and grown ups is always the best part of Squish.
Additional information about science is fun as well, but children will enjoy seeing Squish caught in the throes of striving for "rainbow effect" and "kitten effect" to the exclusion of all else. A teacher who likes comics, as well as a father who supports Squish's interest, add to the fun characters. Weaknesses: This was a bit cautionary, and I'm not sure if children who are addicted to video games will see themselves in this and learn from it! We can only hope!
Aug 26, Raina rated it really liked it Shelves: graphicnovel , funny , j. Super cute comic about an amoeba who just can't win. In this volume, he becomes addicted to a video game! I can relate, as I spend probably most of my smartphone time going on adventures with trains and zombies and candy. Turns out, Squish also has homework to contend with. It's cute, has a silly sense of humor, and the kids eat it up.
