Mal and Chad: The Biggest, Bestest Time Ever!

First of the series by Stephen McCranie. New York, NY: Philomel, 2011

Wonderfully fun series about Mal a remarkably creative albeit sometimes lonely boy-genius and his dog Chad who together tackle school assignments, bullies, time travel and more.

See how to use this book to teach onomatopoeia and literary devices in Worth A Thousand Words: Using Graphic Novels to Teach Visual and Verbal Literacy (pp.83-83; 101-102).
