Customers are always asking me for "age appropriate" comics for their early teen kids. I'm not sure what "age appropriate" means - it is as empty a phrase as "family values." I was a Robert Crumb fan before I could drive. I've always thought kids should be reading things that adults wouldn't consider age appropriate. But that doesn't always fly with parents who just want to get their kids a great coming of age tale that isn't weird coming from them. Here' Ayun Halliday and Paul Hoppe have solved my dilemma. Ayun's story of Sadie, a girl who plans to make some friends by pretending to have a peanut allergy, is delightful, and Hoppe's art is dynamic and energetic with well-used spot color.
