Publisher Summary

“An action-packed page turner with heart!”–Dav Pilkey, author of DOG MAN Take off on an action packed adventure with HILO Book 1! Dog Manmeets Big Nate in this hilarious New York Times bestselling graphic novel series that kids love! BOOM! CLANG! CRASH! D.J. and Gina are totally ordinary kids. But Hilo isn’t! Hilo just fell out of the sky and doesn’t know where he came from, or what he’s doing on Earth. (Or why going to school in only your underwear is a BAD idea!) . . . But UH-OH, what if Hilo wasn’t the only thing to fall to our planet? Can the trio unlock the secrets of Hilo’s past? Can Hilo survive a day at school? Find out in HILO-a laugh-out-loud, epic story of friendship! Adventure! (And the occasionaly mutant space robot).
