Kid’s Book Review: Squished

Kid’s Book Review: Squished

About the Book and Author

This is a fun new graphic novel about finding your own space… especially when you’re in a family of nine!

Eleven-year-old Avery Lee loves the town where she lives but she’d fed up with feeling squished by her six siblings!
All Avery wants is her own room – her own space to be alone and make art.

Avery hatches a plan to finally get her own room, all while trying navigating changes in her friendships, and working on an art entry for the fair. But things get complicated when Avery finds out that her family might move across the country…

Megan Wagner Lloyd is the author of the kids’ graphic novels ALLERGIC and SQUISHED, co-created with illustrator Michelle Mee Nutter, and the SUPER PANCAKE kids’ graphic novel series, co-created with illustrator Abhi Alwar. Visit her website to find out more about her other books.


Book Review

I liked how it’s in a comic form but it’s still a big book

The story is about a family, who love where they already live but are planning to move to a different state in the U.S. and having some doubts about relocating.

However, in the end, they realised that they were ready and happy to move.

I liked how it’s in a comic form but it’s still a big book. This makes you feel like you’re reading a lot in a short amount of time; therefore, you read more of it. I also like the storyline of the book.

I think it’s a really good book for kids who like books with fewer words because it is in a comic form.
