If you like funny and you like graphic novels, then you won’t want to miss this event! Hilo returns and still isn’t ordinary, and two Neanderthal siblings take on a group of humans in these great new books. This in-store event is free and open to the public. To join the signing line, please purchase the author’s latest book, Hilo 2 (Winick) or Lucy & Andy Neanderthal (Brown) from Anderson’s.
26 S La Grange Road, La Grange IL 60525
Join us Monday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. when two kids’ comics creators present their latest books. Jeffrey Brown, known for books like Jedi Academy and Vader’s Little Princess, now turns his attention to the cave age with his new book, Lucy & Andy Neanderthal. Judd Winick, meanwhile, continues the adventures of his popular robot named HiLo in “HiLo 2: Saving the Whole Wide World.” Politics & Prose will sell books by Brown and Winick at our event, but the program is free and no purchase is required to attend.
Andy and Lucy may live 40,000 years in the past, but these Neanderthal siblings have problems—crushes, squabbles, and baby brothers— that persist today. Brown tells their story alongside nonfiction sections that serve to dispel misinformation about these human relatives.
In Winick’s sequel to Hilo, the titular heroic alien robot unexpectedly returns to Earth and human friends DJ and Gina. Then, mysterious portals pop up all over town and disgorge one terrifying creature after another. An enormous mutant chicken and a million killer vegetables are only some of the foes that Hilo, DJ, and Gina must confront in order to save their community.

Award winning cartoonist and author Judd Winick appears at Book Revue on Wednesday, September 16th, 2015 at 7:00 PM speak about and sign his new children’s book, Hilo: The Boy who Crashed To Earth.
Introducing HILO—a funny, action-packed, full-color new middle-grade graphic novel series that Bone creator Jeff Smith calls “delightful.”
D.J. and his friend Gina are totally normal kids. But that was before a mysterious boy came crashing down from the sky! Hilo doesn’t know where he came from, or what he’s doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a bad idea!) . . . But what if Hilo wasn’t the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of his past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? And are D.J. and Gina ready to save the world?
HILO is Calvin and Hobbes meets Big Nate and is just right for fans of Bone and comic books as well as laugh-out-loud school adventures like Jedi Academy and Wimpy Kid!
All books signed at Book Revue events must be purchased at Book Revue. If you purchase the book prior to the event please save your receipt. If you have purchased the book from somewhere else you can still get your book signed, we just ask that you make a purchase in our store of equal or greater value to that of the book.
