A review by crizzle
Funny Girl by Betsy Bird


I picked this out for Moo at the library because I noticed our favorite graphic novelists -RAINA TELGEMEIER (squeeeeeeeal!!!) and Cece Bell! I would definitely recommend this for 5th - 7th grade girls. For me, the best part of the book was the intro by the editor, Betsy Bird, who recounts her middle school invisible ninja skills until the day in which she realizes her true super power - humor - and encourages girls to laugh at themselves and their situation instead of becoming humiliated and letting it have power over them. Reminds me of that verse in Proverbs, "she can laugh at the days to come."
