    Gutman and Paillot make a smooth transition from their long-running My Weird School series of illustrated books to the graphic novel format, not just translating but amplifying the zaniness of AJ's high jinks, along with that of all the weird teachers at the Ella Mentry school. AJ and the gang take a field trip to NASA for their study of climate change and accidentally launch themselves into space (the "launch" button is easily mistaken for the "lunch" button, after all). Tour guide Mr. Corbett is no help, even when the kids run into a spaceship full of aliens, but have no fear: AJ may hate school, but he sure knows how to pilot a rocket into a cotton candy factory. Paillot's goofy but stylized visuals enliven Gutman's breakneck humor more expansively than ever, and barely a panel or clever aside goes by without a chuckle or belly laugh. Lest you worry that there's no heart here along with the humor, the book also includes recommendations for kids who want to pursue climate-based activism. Fans will be absolutely delighted and newcomers no less so. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
