Description

"An action-packed page turner with heart!"—Dav Pilkey, author of DOG MAN

When Mega Robot Monsters start to wake up, Hilo gets brand new SUPER POWERS! Take off on an action packed adventure in this hilarious New York Times bestselling graphic novel series that kids love! Chock full of MORE MONSTERS! MORE ACTION! MORE LAUGHS! MORE FUN!

DJ and Gina are TOTALLY ordinary kids. But Hilo isn't! ALERT! ALERT! ALERT! Has our favorite space boy finally met his match? Not if D.J. and Gina can help it! Mega Robot Monsters are suddenly waking up all over and they're TOO BIG and TOO STRONG for Hilo to fight on his own! Luckily, he doesn't have to! He has GINA and some brand new SUPER POWERS on his side! Being heroes can be super fun-but it can also be SUPER dangerous! And the closer Hilo and Gina get to saving their world from the monsters—the closer Hilo gets to the dark secret of his past. Does he really want to know? Do WE?!
Here's what people (and robots!) are saying about Hilo!

"Every kid would love a pal like HILO, and every kid will love this book!" —Lincoln Peirce, bestselling author of the Big Nate series
"A perfect book for any kid who ever needed a friend and then had one with superpowers fall from space." —Seth Meyers, actor, comedian and writer
* "A wholeheartedly weird and wonderful tale of friendship, acceptance, and robots."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

        Newly discovered sister Izzy (from The Great Big Boom) and pals D.J. and Gina help extraterrestrial robot-boy Hilo disarm several metal monsters buried on Earth by Hilo's nemesis Razorwark. In this fourth graphic novel, silly humor and visual gags ("Look! I made an owl �robot]. It farts roses") will keep readers giggling, even as Winick hints at a darker connection between Hilo and Razorwark.
