Boy Detective: I don’t like this book.

Me: What? Why? What’s wrong with it?

Boy Detective: I’m just not interested in it.

(From Star Wars Adventures: Princess Leia And The Royal Ransom, script by Jeremy Barlow, art by Carlo Soriano, colors by Michael Atiyeh, lettering by Michael Heisler. (Just a heads up that my book posts use affiliate links, but check your local library too!) We recommend the whole Star Wars Adventures series. Not to be confused with the Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures series, which we have not yet read.)
