Michael is no ordinary eight-year-old boy in a bunny suit. He is Captain Long Ears, Space Ninja, on a mission with his best friend (an imaginary purple gorilla named Jam) to locate the missing Captain Big Nose. In reality, the young hero lost both parents—his father to death and his mother to grief. She isn't even aware that her son spends an entire day and night at “Headquarters,” aka Happy Land amusement park. Michael is a likable and charming, if weird, kid: he thinks cotton candy will cure a cold and loves poop jokes. Adventures on the high seas and in the icy blackness of space are artfully depicted in black-and-white renderings so full of life that readers won't miss the lack of Technicolor. Kids might have to whip out the dictionary to appreciate Michael's large vocabulary (saccharine, glutton, and eviscerate show up in the first 20 pages). Thung's graphic-novel debut plunges readers into the depths of Michael's imagination, denial, and neglect, but the search for Captain Big Nose will leave them spellbound. Grades 5-7. --Courtney JonesReview:
