Staff Reviews

Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky (and the whole trilogy) is just an absolute action-packed blast! The worldbuilding — with Black American folklore heroes and West African gods and mythology — is incredibly immersive and the story is a captivating page turner. Kwame Mbalia's writing is a master class in creating a truly memorable story that doesn't shy away from weightier topics like grief and trauma. This book is so much fun to read and a huge part of that is the incredible and hilarious character that is Gum Baby. Trust me, you need Gum Baby in your life! Tristan is a hero you will root for wholeheartedly throughout his adventures as he learns the magic and importance of storytelling and friendship and a deeper sense of what it means to be part of the diaspora. Tristan Strong is one of those books that I will forever hold dear to my heart and I wish I could put it into the hands of every Middle Grade reader — it really is THAT good!
