From New York Times bestselling author Aaron Reynolds comes the latest installment of Caveboy Dave, a middle-grade graphic novel series perfect for fans of Captain Underpants.
Twelve-year-old Dave Unga-Bunga is having a great year: he survived his deadly Baby-Go-Boom ceremony, he's earned the respect of the villagers of Bleccchh, and he just invented ice cream and summer vacation. Before the ice cream melts, Dave and his friends spot a plume of smoke on the horizon (could there be another tribe nearby?) and suddenly Shaman Faboo--the glue that holds the village together--goes missing. With no one to tell them what to do or how to think, the village panics and elects Dave as their new leader. If Dave can't find Shaman Faboo and bring him back (alive), he'll be doomed to a life of boredom and something much worse: public service!
Not So Faboo, the second book in the Caveboy Dave series, delivers irresistible characters, big thrills, and even bigger laughs.

I quickly need to thank Penguin Random House Canada for sending me this unexpected ARC. I was under no obligation to read or review it. Since this was such a fun graphic novel to read I thought I would share my thoughts on it today.

Caveboy Dave Not So Faboo is a middle grade graphic novel and its the second book in the Caveboy Dave series.  Not quite sure if you can read them out of order but I was able to pick this up and follow the story and not feel like I was missing something.

I am not quite sure how to review graphic novels as its something I don’t tend to get a lot of.  I do enjoy reading them. If anyone has any tips on how to review a graphic novel please let me know.

The illustrations are perfect, eye catching and kind of funny when you read through it. I will definitely have to check it out the next time I am in Chapters because the ARC was in black and white.

The main character is a twelve year old boy named Dave Unga-Bunga and he is thinking this this has been the best year of his life so far.

Not to far into the book Dave and his friends spot some smoke off in the distance and this is the first time they have seen this. Could their be other people outside of the village of Bleccchh? They go looking for  Shaman Faboo because he will know what to do but when they go looking for him they discover he is missing. Where did he go?

The villagers start to panic who will run the tribe? They begin to panic because there is no one there to guide them or tell them what to do. Basically they need someone to tell them what to do, how to do it and to think for them.  Without really thinking about it they elect Dave to run the village until the Shaman comes back, if he ever comes back.

Without getting to far into the graphic novel and what is about I do have to say that this was a quick and fun read. I read it in one sitting. I did laugh so I would recommend it to any kids who like graphic novels and is looking for something new to read.
