    One thought on “Saving the Whole Wide World”

    1. AHHHHHH!!! (that's a text connectionyou'll understand when you read the book) How can I wait until 2017 to find out how they save Gina????

    2. This is my favorite book of the year. Children will love this tale, which is about a robot who comes to Earth.

    3. This second book in the Hilo series is just as fresh and exciting as the first. In this book, Hilo and his friends DJ and Gina have to figure out how to save the earth from creatures who are appearing from other planets through strange portals. Luckily, Hilo quickly figures out how to zap the creatures back to their worlds, but soon even he can’t keep up with number of portals opening. Then there is also the question of Razorwark, the villain from the first book and whether he will be arriving [...]

    4. This second volume of Hilo has rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller lists, and with good reason: Winick has created a masterful new series that appeals to a wide range of readers. Enough background is given so that readers can start fresh with volume 2 without even realizing there is a volume 1.See my full review over at No Flying No Tightsnoflyingnotights/2016/07/1

    5. A wonderful sequel—and what cliffhanger! Hilo wrestles with the meaning of his slowly-returning, piecemeal memories. At the same time, he’s torn between wanting to do no harm to other robotic creatures with whom he sees kinship, while still protecting the people of earth AND avoiding the notice of the authorities. The dialogue is very funny; family relationships are warm and perfectly preteen-awkward. The Hilo series is a perfect example of why graphic novels are so wonderful: the comic-stri [...]

    6. Outstanding! My wife would call it a "cookie stealer". There will be a long line for book three as the relationships got stronger and the action is ongoing. I loved the cat in this book too. I think it was even better than the first.

    7. Hazzah!! A new Hilo book! I liked the first one a lot, and this one's even better. It's exciting, poignant, surprising, and even funnier than the first. I HATE cats. Seriouslyblech. But this book made me like a cat! Polly is an amazing character. I'm just waiting for the opportunity to call someone a bloated, zit-caked boil from a troll's butt. Maybe over Christmas dinner The worst thing is that I have to wait until 2017 to find out what happens with that cliffhanger. I just may ralph.

    8. I love Hilo!!!!! This book isn't just for kids! I'm 44 and I think it's fantastic!!! I laughed out loud through the whole thing. If you haven't read the Hilo books, you need too!!! OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!

    9. 4.5 stars. HiLo is a fun graphic novel series with major kid-appeal. It has action, suspense, humor, and heart. I liked this story even more than the first!

    10. I was pretty impressed by how this series started out, but oh how quickly things changed. I felt like this novel was lacking a lot of the humor that was found in the first one, was easily sidetracked and often had times of confusion (like where did that creature come from, did I miss that person being introduced? type confusion). Seeing as they're such quick reads I'm going to give the next installment a go, but I'm for sure not as excited about that one as I originally thought I would be. Somet [...]

    11. HiLo is back and ready for adventures with his two besties D.J. and Gina! We get to know a little bit more about where he came from and what happened in his past. Things also get a bit more dangerous and a magical warrior cat joins the crew. I adore this series. HiLo is so adorable and I love the friendship they all have. It makes me happy and I would recommend these books to anyone and everyone.

    12. The saga continues as the boy robot from outer space revisits his earthling friends in order to save the world from a new onslaught of aliens. Some repetitive of the initial story line and falls short in developing the most interesting aspects of the story -- how a boy robot copes with life on earth and his friends try to keep him secret -- readers of the first book will enjoy the action in the second book. A cliff hanger ending will lead many kids into the third book as well. Hilo is a good acc [...]

    13. 5 Stars, Buy itA great little series continues. Razorwark is still on his way to earth and sends other rather cute creatures through the gates. The gang continues to fight. Hilo discovers all sorts of things he can do. DJ discovers what he’s good at. And of course it ends on a rather dramatic cliff hanger. The next book in the series isn’t due until Feb 21. Arg. I pre ordered it because Book 2 was even better than Book 1. Definitely a good series worth reading both to kids and adults who lik [...]

    14. The illustrations in this graphic novel are phenomenal. Winick pays attention to all the things that make a graphic novel worth reading: color/page balance/interesting perspective/spot-on illustrations, humor, a solid story line, character development, awesome super powers for the good guys, boo hiss moments with the bad guys, and a suspenseful ending so we'll keep coming back. Well done, sir! You've made a fan out of me, and my kids are hooked, too.

    15. By the second book, Saving the Whole Wide World, their duo has expanded to include Gina who used to be D.J.'s best friend before she moved away. She's struggling with her own identity so it's challenging to try and sort out just what kind of a creature HiLo actually isd if he's a hero or a villain. The stakes are higher and the danger is 100% real but it doesn't seem like there's anything that HiLo can't defeat

    16. The mystery of Hilo continues in volume two. I couldn’t put the book down. A perfect read for a lazy afternoon. Winick does an amazing job putting together a cast of characters a reader can enjoy and care about. A fun read for comic fans both large and small!

    17. Really liked the first one but I think this one is even better! I can even forgive the cliffhanger at the end. Polly(the cat) was so random but, for some reason, that made me love her more. This will very likely be my pick for the BES graphic novel category.

    18. Continuing my quest to keep my nephew (8) reading and maintain my aunt-cred. Also a good tutorial in what the second installment in a trilogy should accomplish. (FYI My 10-year-old niece reads and loves these, too.)

    19. Hilo's friends are different from him because he is a robot, who came from another dimension. In this book, Hilo does his personal best to try to save the Earth(from Hilo's boss from his dimension). When Hilo comes to Earth, he try to stop his old boss.

    20. An edge-of-your-seat sequel to HiLo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth. HiLo begins to remember more of his past through his dreams, but when Razorwark makes his appearance, the truth may be too much for HiLo to bear. Can't wait to read the 3rd book!

    21. These books are action packed, fast paced, and filled with fun fun fun characters! I can't wait to read the next ones. Recommended for: children who like action, fast-pace, laughs, as a gateway to some sci-fi reading, upper elementary school readers

    22. Ahh! Another cliff hanger ending, and this one is worse than the last. I love the deeper issues at work here, can robots have feelings? Can they be good or evil or change from evil to good? Can friends overcome anything? Keep up the good work!
