About the Author:

Jimmy Gownley began writing and drawing comics at the age of fifteen. He is an advocate for kids’ comics, having cofounded the organization Kids Love Comics, which works to promote comic books and graphic novels as a valuable tool for literacy and education in schools, libraries, and at home. He lives with his wife Karen and their twin daughters, Stella and Anna, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. Having been previously self-published by Gownley, the first five episodes of the Amelia comics are now available in a newly minted edition, with some unpublished art and an introduction by children's author Megan McDonald, whose character Judy Moody could be fourth-grader Amelia's soul sister. Moody is certainly an apt term for Amelia, who is getting used to life with her newly divorced mom and her hip, young aunt Tanner; settling in at a strange new school; and finding a group of friends. Amelia is no sweet innocent, nor are her three G.A.S.P (Gathering of Awesome Superpals) buddies: Reggie, superhero in the making; Rhonda, Amelia's tough bete noire with a fourth-grade "thing" for Reggie; and quiet, mysterious Pajamaman. Jealousy, meanness, sadness, and confusion, as well as surprising generosity, and love crisscross the pages in energetic, freewheeling, full-color cartoon art that unwraps a kid's-eye view of life honestly, poignantly, and with a hefty dollop of melodrama.
