Review: Kit Feeny: On the Move is the first comic book in the series and it is written by Michael Townsend; it is a humorous and entertaining, comic book. The main characters in this book is, Kit Feeny a normal boy, his two crazy sisters April and Bonnie Feeny and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Feeny and last but not the least, Kit’s best friend, Arnold.
Kit Fenny is a boy who is moving, and isn’t very happy about it. He tries to smuggle his best friend, Arnold along with his family. Obviously it doesn’t work and Arnold is sent back to his own family and house. Now Kit doesn’t know what to do and has to make new friends and has to go to a new school. What will Kit Feeny do and how will he survive without his best friend? Read the rest of the comic book to find out what happens.
I loved the vivid and bold colors on each box of the comic book. I also liked the thrilling cover with all these different illustrations on it, looks like Michael made Kit a “stupid awesome” artist (stupid awesome is Kit’s favorite quote). My favorite part is when Kit is reading the comic that Arnold and he made together, “The Great Gummy Fish Disaster: A True Story”, it is very hilarious and amusing. My least favorite part or the saddest part was when Devon, the bully in his new school is making Kit look like a fool and making bad jokes about him on his first bus ride to his new school. I thought that it was very vile.
I look forward to reading Kit Feeny: The Ugly Necklace, the second book in the series. People have told me that it is totally “stupid awesome, and I can’t wait to read yet another of Kit’s fully action and energy packed story!
