Book Blog Stop -- Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King by Claudio Sanchez -- Review and #Giveaway #KCKK

Disclosure:  I was sent a digital copy of the book in exchange for a review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.






"Kid Crazy Carlson thirsts for adventure in the far-off and bustling City of Ever. One day he meets a robot that warns him of the grumpy Kilowatt King that rules there―who forces people to sing for him. Despite the robot’s warning, Kid decides to make the voyage to the city and the two travel in a car made of bread through candy bar men, robot travelers, and dancing elephants to reach their destination. Finally, Kid stands before the sour King Kilowatt and teaches him a lesson in manners: the value of the word “please.”


Usually my girls aren't into comic book style books, but when I showed them the digital copy I was sent to review, they were intrigued and wanted me to read it to them.  


This book is not like any I have shared with the girls.  For one the illustrations were unique and truly made the story more enjoyable and lifelike.  And, while at times the story had a rhyming feel, it would flow differently in spots.  But, the girls didn't mind.  They were too caught up in the illustrations and seeing what Kid and Denuzio Spatta, his robot friend.  


Both of my girls giggled when they saw Kid and the robot riding along in a car made of bread.  They said, "That is silly," but with the bizarre landscape of the City of Ever, riding in a car of bread fits right in.  Can you imagine dancing elephants, robot travelers or even candy bar men? Well book contains all of these and then some.  


The storyline is simple Kid Crazy has to be careful of grumpy Kilowatt King, then enemy in the story.  But, when he comes face to face with the enemy, what will happen?  Will Kid Crazy be able to teach the Kilowatt King a lesson -- in this case, the importance of the word, "Please?"


Can you believe this book has 72 pages?  This is more pages than the girls are used to sitting and having me read with them.  But, you don't notice this when you start reading the book as you find yourself getting lost in the world of City of Ever and rooting for Kid Crazy to save the day and teach Kilowatt King a lesson.  Hats off to Caludio Sanchez for his first book release.  And, my girls and I are so hoping for more books in what I hope is a long-running series of Kid Crazy books.  


If you are looking for a unique yet fun book to share with your child(ren), then you will want to check out Evil Inc. Kid Crazy And The Kilowatt King Comic.  You don't have to be a fan of comics to enjoy this book.  You just have an imagination you are willing to explore with as you read this fun story.


More About the Book:





A Fantastical Lesson About the Power of the Word Please 

Rocker and New York Times best-selling graphic novelist Claudio Sanchez pens his first children’s book

"Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez, already a New York Times best-selling comic book creator, ventures into new territory with his first children’s book, Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King.

In the book, Kid Crazy Carlson longs for adventure in the far-off and bustling City of Ever. His world changes when he meets a strange droid called Denunzio who warns Kid of the city’s grumpy Kilowatt King, a rude man who forces the citizens to sing for him. Despite the robot’s warning, Kid decides to make the voyage to the city and the two set sail in a car made of bread through beautiful and bizarre landscapes, passing extraordinary sights like candy bar men, robot travelers and dancing elephants, before finally reaching the city. When Kid eventually comes face to face with the rotten ruler, he decides it’s time someone teaches him a lesson in manners: the power of the word “please.”

The 80-page book features art from Brazilian illustrator Arthur Mask. Several exclusive book bundles are available on Sanchez’s own Evil Ink Comics website, www.evilink.com, including a Kid Crazy Limited Coke-Bottle-Green 7" Vinyl, featuring an original song and the Kid Crazy and the Kilowatt King audiobook read by Claudio Sanchez."
