Joey Fly Private Eye GN – Kids are both fascinated and repulsed by insects, which will make this title all the more appealing.  Joey Fly is a private investigator working in a city totally inhabited by insects.  With his tough but clumsy junior partner, a scorpion named Sammy Stingtail, he takes on the case of the missing diamond pencil box for Delilah, a butterfly damsel in distress.  Spoofing film noir detective stories while throwing in plenty of bug humor and puns, this title has everything to bring a smile to a kid’s face. 

Marvel Adventures Spider-Man TP Vol 12 – This is the all ages version of Spiderman, with all the same villains, and age appropriate tales.  Collecting issues 45-48, Spidey must face an legion of lizards, find a way to make some money to buy Aunt May a Christmas gift, gets a lesson about jumping to conclusions from The Prowler, and gets caught between Electro and The Scorpion.  Things are never easy for the web-slinger, no matter the age.  Younger Spidey fans will love these stories though, and the compilation makes it easy for libraries to stock.
