Author information

Jay Lynch, who wrote Mo and Jo's story, loved to read superhero comics like "Plastic Man" when he was a kid. When he wasn't reading comic books, he would draw his own cartoon characters on the sidewalk in front of his house--then hide in the bushes to hear what other kids had to say about his drawings! Jay grew up to become a legendary cartoonist and has helped create many popular humor products, including "Wacky Packages "and "Garbage Pail Kids. " " " Dean Haspiel used to read "Fantastic Four" and "Shazam!" when he was a kid. He admits that when he was young, he used to fight with his brother, too: "All siblings have a healthy rivalry, and so did we." He has illustrated Pulitzer Prize-wining author Michael Chabon's "The Escapist" and drawn superheroes for Marvel and DC Comics. He created his own comic character, "Billy Dogma," and is the founder of the webcomic collective ACT-I-VATE.

Joey and Mona are typical siblings. They argue - a lot. They fight over the video game controller - a lot. They make fun of each other - a lot.

There's one thing they can agree on, though. Mighty MoJo is the most awesome superhero ever. And when they discover the secret behind MoJo's identity, and are given his superpowers to fight evil, you'd think the arguing between Joey and Mona would stop.

But it doesn't, until they realize they'll have to work together to use MoJo's powers to protect the world.

MO AND JO: FIGHTING TOGETHER FOREVER is the perfect book to introduce children to comics and graphic novels. My daughter, who is almost eight, loves the format of these types of books, but since they're usually written for older teens, the content isn't always appropriate. This one was perfect for her, and, as the younger sister of a nearly-teen brother, she could perfectly relate to the storyline, as well.

A great book with wonderful, full-color illustrations, you don't want to miss this one!
