    1. A graphic novel for younger readers about a young Elvis fan I think I will buy a copy of this for my dad, who is the biggest Elvis fan ever no, really he wrote his PhD thesis on Elvis I win because I can picture him enjoying reading this to his grandkids The art style was not really my taste, but I think it fit the book, and it was a glimpse for my kids of what their Pop Pop might have been like as a kid.

    2. Long ago, roundabout 1973 or so, a young Mark Alan Stamaty wrote a picture book It was called Who Needs Donuts and it remains, to this day, just the trippiest darn thing you ever did see Trippy and remarkably beautiful Somehow or other Stamaty was able to cram tiny details in a single centimeter than most folks do on an entire page It was like Peter Sis on angel dust Since the publication of that book Mr Stamaty has had various other titles for kids Books like Small in the Saddle, Minnie Malone [...]

    3. This is a quick read with some engaging art The underlying message is that encouraging people in their passions is important, even if we don t always understand why they are passionate It is also a nice story about overcoming one s personal fears, and embracing the power of music.

    4. Reason for Reading I entered a contest the author was running for a free copy because the book sounded so cool I never heard back, knowing I d not won, and honestly, forgot about the book when six months later I received a cool letter in the mail from the author with a postcard and an original drawing he d made I just had to read it after that This is truly an amazing book and story that kids and their parents will love and their grand parents may love even I think it s integral to the enjoymen [...]

    5. Nonfiction Twin Text Entry 4 This book is about an eight year old boy who got a radio for his birthday Mark loved music, but than that, he loved rock and roll From the very first moment he heard Elvis Presley sing on that small radio, he was hooked, body and soul He began styling his hair like Elvis, dancing like Elvis, and even pretended to play the guitar like him However, his mother forbid him from listening to the music he loved so much because she was afraid he would turn into a juvenile d [...]

    6. 1 This graphic book tells the story of a young boy who discovers the powerful music of Elvis His mother did not want him listening to what she called, this awful music but that did not stop him He decided to style his hair like him and everyone thought he looked just like him Then at a boy scout talent show, his troop performed and Elvis song with him as Elvis and the crowd went wild After that his mom was proud of him and realized how important this music was.2 This is a fun book for children t [...]

    7. When Mark Alan Stamaty s parents gave him his own radio at age eight, they thought he d be listening to the gentle popular music of the time But one evening, Elvis and Hound Dog blasted from the radio and everything changed with rock and roll Mark s mother was alarmed at this new music and forbade him from buying any of Elvis records Mark was still able to read about Elvis in magazines, listen to him on the radio, and even see him on TV Eventually, Mark s mother gave up and gave in and he was ab [...]

    8. I avoided this book for a while, because the pictures looked too detailed and the dialogue too crammed in But as with most graphic novels, once I start reading them, my brain gets into that visual world and it reads just fine I m very glad that I gave this one a try, for it s a fun and unusual graphic novel memoir As Mark discovers Elvis to his wonderment , his mom, who gave him the plastic radio repsonsible for this atrocious music, feels like a cornered hostage in a vampire horror movie It was [...]

    9. At first I thought a picture book about Elvis Do kids even care about Elvis But this turns out to be a graphic novel about how music changed the author s life as a boy, specifically the birth of rock and roll and and especially Elvis Presley s talent He makes it a personal and funny story his mother can t stand Elvis music, he does his hair up like Elvis and practices air performances in his bedroom with a tennis racket The best part is his air performance at the Cub Scout dinner By now readers [...]

    10. At first I was rather annoyed at the lettering which made me not so happy with the whole book The letters are in all caps and squished closely together so it s very hard to read It also makes the pages pretty busy However, the story is rather delightful with some good history as well as emotional growth The illustration style initially struck me as rather ugly with amateurish characters with creepy expressions but eventually I got used to it and even found that it seemed appropriate for the time [...]

    11. Of course, this book is dedicated to Mom how else would Elvis want it Mom obsessed and terrifically talented, the King went out into the world looking for affirmation This guy, the author, got his mojo from the king, and even had a chance to perform in front of President Clinton His mom was only partially mollified, by the way As Elvis plugs in and turns on, we are amazed at his innocence A really succinct and, thankfully, incomplete portrait of a amazing musician and his protege are portrayed i [...]

    12. Although this looks like a children s picture book, in my opinion, it s really a graphic novel so that s where I ll have it catalogued The author turns his interest in Elvis Presley into an entertaining story which I really liked The illustrations can be overwhelming at times because there s so much happening on the page.

    13. Even though the musician in question is Elvis, kids today will totally get the appeal I mean, how many parents love their kids music And how many kids have wanted to dress like or be like or sing like their favorite star This one ought to make sense to anyone.

    14. I probably would have rated this higher if I actually liked Elvis Beatles Forever However, it s an entertaining story of how Elvis and rock and roll stole the hearts of the young and put up a musical barrier between them and their parents.

    15. I really liked the format of this one and enjoyed the story as well I m not sure of the appeal to kids, however I, personally never saw the appeal of Elvis, so I m not sure that today s kids will Guess I ll have to try it out

    16. Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll In this fun book about Elvis Presley and music, students can learn about Elvis in this non fiction book while still enjoying it Mark is amazed by Elvis and wants to be just like him He now has a role model which students can learn about as well.

    17. This slim graphic novel is a treat for any kid who loves Elvis and or any music that drives his her parents CRAZY The colorful, extremely animated drawings bring this charming memoir to life Grades 4 Karen

    18. Loved the first person telling of how music changed their world However, the print might be difficult for some younger students to read alone But it would make a good read aloud and discussion book.

    19. A walk down memory lane a bit earlier than mine, though This should be fun to use in school with the students.

    20. It is a picture book about a boy who loves Elvis It is similar to a comic book I found there was way too much color and information on the page.

    21. Wonderful sequential art autobiography.I love the theme that hobbies and passions can enhance life and bring joy.
