    One thought on “Gronk Volume 2”

    1. (I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)In this second volume of Katie Cook's popular series Gronk, Gronk is learning to adjust to OUR world through the teachings of Dale, a woman who probably shouldn't be teaching anyone how to adjust to the real world. Join Gronk, Dale, Harli, and Kitty for another year of fun!I read the first book in this series (see my review here: /review/show) and quite liked it. There was somewhat of a storyline connecting ea [...]

Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]

    3. Review originally published to my blog The Leaning Tower of Tomes: leaningtoweroftomes.wordpressTHE REVIEW:Gronk: Volume 2 is the second compilation of Gronk comics, short graphic stories about the cute, little green monster, Gronk, and her new family: Dale, a nerdy human, Harli, her Newfoundland, and Kitty the cat. I recently posted my review of Volume 1, so go check that out, too.Now, here are some thoughts I had while reading this second volume of Gronk by Katie Cook:1) “The Cast of Gronk [...]

    4. This second volume of Gronk comics is just as full of humor and warmth as the first. In this collection, Gronk continues to live with Dale, Kitty, and Harli and explore life in the human world. Several events were particularly funny to me. One was Gronk's reaction to Dale dog-sitting for her brother's pug. Gronk mistakes the dog for a really cute monster and has a crush on him. She acts out romantic scenes from several movies - "Titanic", "Dirty Dancing", and "Say Anything." (I'd really like to [...]

    5. 'Gronk volume 2' by Katie Cook collects another year in the life of the world's most unscary monster and her life with human Dale, dog Harli, and cat Kitty.Gronk tries to get Dale to give her an iPad. There are more movie references. Gronk discovers online ordering, indoor jousting and how to get a reaction using certain bad words. Gronk tries to trap Santa and extort more candy for Halloween. Gronk gets in trouble for writing on the walls, and getting a Twitter account. Through all of it, Gronk [...]

    6. A second collection of episodic adventures with the best friendly-critter-that's-not-really-supposed-to-look-like-Pikachu-but-does and its human companion. If you don't laugh at it sticking plastic googly eyes on to the butt of a sleeping cat to while the days away, or trying to play Wii Sports, you really are in a bad place. This book is in a fine place, and the weekly comic doesn't seem to show any slacking off after a brace of great little paper volumes to anthologise it. Almost worth 5 stars [...]

    7. Originally posted at Read. Run. Study.This volume continues where the first left off, with Gronk learning more and more about the human world. After Dale hands her an iPad, hilarity ensues as Gronk discovers online shopping, social media, cursing, and arts/crafts. And we are introduced to a very “special” pug named Roofus. As with the second half of the first volume, there isn’t a clear plot here. However, we do see evidence of time passing with references to Halloween, Thanksgiving, and C [...]

    8. Volume 2 of Gronk is just as funny and endearing as Volume 1. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the story of this hapless monster and her adopted family. One of my favorite aspects of the series so far is the inclusion of subtle insider references to various "adult" pop culture pieces that appear on Dale's t-shirts. I'll be looking for them in future volumes. Gronk reminds me a bit of Garfield, but without the bad attitude. This story is entirely light-hearted, but the humor still resonates throu [...]

    9. Gronk took two volumes to grow on me because at first I had a hard time seeing who the audience was - it seemed at times like something you could read with a five year old, but the nerdy references are clearly for my generation (or at least Wyatt's.) But it's really cute - the cat, the dog , the monster who acts like a toddler It brought to mind Calvin and Hobbes a few times.

    10. I really like this series. It has heart. It’s good for all ages. And Gronk is like a two year old who is really 129.

    11. I think Gronk is now my favorite childlike monster! I still can't get enough of the nerdy references (Harry Potter! Big Bird! Star Wars!) Hilarity ensues at every turn of the page as Gronk tries to make it in a human's world. I also liked that this volume touched on Gronk's and Dale's backstories a little bit.

    12. In this second volume we find Gronk still adapting to human life. Dale puts an Ipad into Gronks hands and her world is opened to endless cat videos and one click shopping on . This series is sweet and funny. Dale & Gronk move through the seasons enjoying their companionship. The pop culture refrences continue to permeate the series to my utter enjoyment! A wonderful series.

    13. More fun monster-antics, this time with 200% the Harry Potter references (or so it seems). Also jokes about pugs, geese, and (shockingly) the Big Lebowski. Plus, each new shirt of Dale's sends me down a new rabbit hole.

    14. It's still tough to tell who this is for. It's pretty close to all ages, but there are a LOT of references that will go over kids' heads, and in many cases the references are what make it more than just slapstick antics. As with the first, I LOVE the artwork.

    15. Well drawn and adorable! Very cute, funny, and heartwarming tale of a twenty-something woman raising a baby monster.

    16. Gronk likes to celebrate the seasons! Did you know Katie Cook has done a lot of work on My Little Pony comics? That makes sense. Cool.

    17. Totally adorable. Kid-friendly, but with plenty of references and appeal for grown-ups, too.Note: I received a digital galley of this book through NetGalley.

    18. Loved the art, but the comics weren't as good as the first one. Only about one in five made me smile. (Those were usually the HP references.)

    19. A great follow up to volume 1 with more hilarious Gronk wackiness. Every vignette managed to make me at least smile if not laugh out loud. Galley courtesy of publisher and Netgalley.

    20. A second cute volume of Gronk's adventures from the webcomic. Gronk's explorations into our culture are hilarious and make for a quick read. My favorite was Gronk's antics with googly eyes.
