This is a well-formatted graphic novel for early readers. I liked that Gabby felt bad about disobeying her parents, even though she had a good reason to do so. She even has some nice interactions with her younger brother, and is a good role model. Of course, the real reason to like these is the goofy, Captain Underpants kind of humor. Bonus points for the main character being a Latina.
Younger readers will find it fun that Gabby is sneaking a forbidden treat without her parents' permission, but I just have to say...SUGAR FREE GUM. This really takes care of all of the problems.
