    I'm not going to criticize a book written by a 10 year old! It is very cool that she is a published cartoonist at her age and her artwork is pretty awesome. That said, her humor didn't really work for me, and I think the title's a little obnoxious for someone who's obviously had adult help and support in her life. I'm going to give it to my 8 year old niece to see what someone who's the actual audience for her work thinks.

    Key-ute! Written by then-10-years-old Alexa Kitchen. Her acknowledgments section says it all: "I'd like to thank my Mom for always being there for me and Dad for not butting in with dumb changes."She's a preco snarkypants and I like it.

    There's irreverent-yet-funny, and then there's irreverent-get-grounded. This is the latter, or at least, it should be.She deals with the typical kid complaints, but she is really quite nasty about her family, school, friends, and chores, and there is no real redemption for any topic.What is the point? Very rambly topics and the drawings are on varying ability levels.The author is really indeed 12, which largely explains the title, but I don't get why this comic book has appeal. I know she is 12 and all, but I don't find her to be a talented comic book artist or writer, no matter what her age.

    Again, I'm not the biggest fan of graphic novels, that being said I love this book! It was hilarious and the pictures really add to the storey line - I actually laughed out loud at some parts. You wouldn't believe that this was written by a ten-year-old - the self-proclaimed youngest professional cartoonist in the world! Alexa has a dark sense of humour that comes out in her drawings, and (if you're an adult reading this) takes you back to when you were a kid and the whole world was against you. Like Alexa said, "being a middle-aged kid sucks!"

    Alexa Kitchen, Grown-Ups Are Dumb! (No Offense) (Hyperion, 2009)A lot of potential in this ten-year-old cartoonist, and it's too much to expect someone of that age to have grasped subtlety in humor, or to have mastered the art of drawing; this is a book you should pick up with the expectation of being able to say “I knew her when”, though it's not going to stand up to repeated readings very well. First time around it's quite amusing. ** ½

    I'm not the target audience for this so I can't give it a true review. I will say that I didn't care for most of the humor. I think the illustrations are pretty cute. I liked Hurricane Abby best. My 10-year old daughter did really like the book and since she is the target audience, it makes sense. I do admire that such a young girl was able to become a published professional.

    I mean, she's 10. You can't be too hard on a 10-year-old. I think kids will get into this graphic novel because it's kid humor and it's written by one of their own. It makes you feel like you too could become an artist(and I have no drawing ability)!

    She was 10, she's now 14. Precocious. Talented, yep. Very uneven, as this is a collection of stuff from early, very rough, to more sophisticated (at ten, I presume...). Fun for kids to read and be inspired to do cartoons with...

    Fun follow-up book from 10-year-old cartoonist Alexa Kitchen. She presents some ongoing characters -- kids whose woes will ring true with all kids. My favorite is the food that rises up and speaks, a la Calvin and Hobbes. Fun stuff, and good if you know any budding artists who want inspiration.

    4th graders will enjoy this book and some of the silly stories by 10 year old Alexa Kithche, but will quickly realize that they are JUST AS TALENTED as the authoress herself. You too can be a cartoonist, just stay motivated and keep working!

    it is ok if you ask for this book because it isn't about this girl talking about grown ups are dumb. It is actually a comic book.

    This is cute. Children will like the idea that it was written and drawn by somone close to their age.

    Maybe I would like this more if I was a kid? I don't know. It seemed a bit repetitious.
