Booklist Reviews 2018 July #1

Robotics genius Zoe was burned by friendship in the past, so now she's happily a loner, despite her parents' and teachers' protestations. With the help of her companion robot, B-4, she busies herself with building impressive machines, watching kaiju movies, and avoiding the mayhem of her toddler triplet siblings. That all changes when she finds a ring (which fans of Eliopoulos' Cosmic Commandos, 2017, will recognize) that summons a huge, green, pudgy Godzilla type named Chomp, who eats buildings. At first, Zoe thinks she can handle things on her own, but when more kaiju arrive, she has to ask for help. After all, what's better at breaking down walls than a swarm of monsters who love eating them? Eliopoulos' amiable cartoon artwork is a charming combination of round-headed, Peanuts-style figures and B-movie monsters, with plenty of comical slapstick and robot- and monster-fighting action and a sweetly satisfying conclusion about friendship. A hint about a further story centered around the wish-granting ring will pique the interest of series fans. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Spring

Colored by Rebecca Nalty. In a standalone companion graphic novel to Cosmic Commandos, black girl Zoe--a young inventor, monster-movie fanatic, and loner--accidentally dons a magic ring and calls forth city-eating monsters. Simultaneously saving the city and her new monster friend, Zoe finds greater social acceptance. Adorable, energetic full-color comics and appealing subject matter (monsters! robots! wish-fulfillment!) help to balance the heavy-handed insistence that Zoe should make friends.

Zoe has trouble making friends, but she excels at inventing robots and getting lost in classic monster movies. When she stumbles upon a magic ring, it summons a giant, building-eating monster, nicknamed "Chomp," to be her friend. It also calls to Chomp's pals, who begin to arrive and cause widespread destruction until Zoe, her classmates, her robot assistant, and her new monster friend find a way to protect the city. Through her confrontation with the monsters, Zoe makes friends and learns what it means to trust and collaborate with others. Cartoon art by Eliopoulos (the Ordinary People Change the World series) renders the monstrous antagonists menacing but not entirely terrifying, while Chomp is round and friendly looking, with a protruding lower tooth. This fun, relatable tale captures how children can lose themselves in interests to distract from feelings of loneliness and isolation. While the story occurs in the same universe as Eliopoulos's Cosmic Commandos, it also works perfectly as a standalone. Ages 8–12. (Aug.)
