McGruder's a smart guy!

The comic strip that kicked up so much fuss that it got banned from most newspapers. And all just for keeping it real! Think Peanuts meets the ghetto, and you have the adventures of brothers Riley and Huey, two black kids who move into middle class white America.

this is so


on the best graphic novel list for teens- created by librarians at DC Public Library in Washington. NOt really a graphic novel, its a publication of the comic strips published in the newspaper. This is the story of two elemenary school boys who move from Chicago's south side to an all white suburb. Think Calvin and Hobbes with social justice themes. It was a great read- not too many social studies themes- would be more useful in an inquires course. There is one great cartoon on pg 94 about world history not being important because it dosn't recognize the contributions of non-europeans- there is another cartoon on pg 95 that deals with Eurocentrism in history class.


So Funny


I want to live at the corner of Wu-Tang and Buckshot! I like this book the best because there's a lot of Riley Escobar in it. Huey talking about current issues funny, but I liked it better when it was more character-based.


The boondocks is a show and comic that simply tells the world exactly what everyone is thinking but too afraid to talk about outside their own home.

So this is kept in the Children's section at my public library. At first I thought "what is this doing here?" because I've seen the cartoon which is rated TV-MA or whatever. The humour is pretty similar but the striking difference is that while in the TV series they say the n-word in pretty much every episode, there's no "bad words" in the comic strip, except for the occasional exclamation which is totally bleeped out.I don't see a problem with kids reading this. Some of Huey's ideas might go over the heads of kids who aren't looking for an intellectual experience, I'd say it's good for pretty much all ages. Aaron McGruder is hilarious.


I laughed out loud more times than I can count and laughter is good for the body and the mind. Aaron McGruder is spot on in so many of these strips.
