Where’s Leopold? Your Pajamas are showing! By Michel-Yves Schmitt–OPTIONAL

Schmitt, Michel-Yves Illustrated by Caut, Vincent Where’s Leopold? Your Pajamas are showing! 40 pgs. Graphic Universe, 2013. $6.95.  Content: Language: G (0 swears);  Mature Content: G ;  Violence: G.
One day Leopold discovers he can make himself disappear, which is cool, but his clothes still show! He sister finds out and is a bit jealous, but soon finds out how it can benefit her, and also be totally annoying too. Things are even sillier once Leopold figures out how to make his clothes disappear too!
This was an okay graphic novel. The plot kind of peters out in an odd way. Also, the characters turn yellow when they are mad/shocked, which was confusing, I thought maybe they were getting new super powers. The artwork is ok. The storyline was pretty much exactly what a real boy would think and do, given the power of invisibility –so students will relate to that and laugh a lot.
