Thanks to NetGalley and Papercutz for access to this ARC of "Astro Mouse and Light Bulb." This is definitely a quirky read for children! The storyline and illustrations are unique, engaging, and fun. My 9 year old enjoyed it!

Thank you to @netgalley and the publisher for this free eARC.
I read this in 10 min and it was fun. Of course it's really for children but I found some bit really funny.
Not a bad read if you want to cheer yourself up.

Thank you NetGalley for the chance to review. 
This story follows Astro mouse and his friends lightbulb and ca-ca. I just felt like it was a bunch of comics thrown together to try to make a story. I’m not the intended audience. I think someone in higher elementary school or middle grade may enjoy it more than I do.

This did not feel like a full story.  It felt like a collection of comic strips thrown into a book.  The humor was meant for 3rd grade but some is so sophisticated, I am not sure a 3rd grade audience would get it.  The illustrations are fun and will attract readers, but I am not sure the book is worth the time it takes to catalog.

I had high hopes for this book on the basis of a light bulb being a character. It's a strange selection and I was prepared for a pretty weird read. The story is a bit too much nonsense for my tastes. There's no real central plot. It's mostly just Astro Mouse and Light Bulb wandering aimlessly and random things happening in front of them. And the humor appeals only to the lowest common denominator.

An entertaining and humorous comic, full of life and colorful images. Sure to capture a wide range of readers, and enjoyable for fans of the medium.
