" A graphic novel told in interconnected chapters. Far-fetched, but fun, and I can see its appeal to kids middle school and up. The scenes when TB learns to drive are great. Don't miss the explanation on how the book was created. " said.

" The title says it all, he is a teen and he turns into a boat. It is such a ridiculous idea that is executed well that it works well. It touches upon lots of typical teen issues---peer pressure, crushes, attempting to get a driver's license. " said.

" This is a funny, enjoyable graphic novel about the adventures of a boy named Teen Boat--a teenaged boy who can transform himself into a boat. I found myself smiling at this one. It would make for a great read for students in upper middle school or lower high school grades. " said.

" One of the most original ideas in recent memory, Teen Boat is filled with hilarious puns, teen angst, and a lot of nautical terms. The main character is a bit of a jerk, but that's all teenagers, so spot on! " said.

" Wow. I can't believe how good this actually was. I was rolling in my seat almost the whole time. Great foreshadowing techniques, wonderful use of the absurd, and fantastic Shrek-style moments where there are jokes that the majority of readers (teenagers) are too young to fully appreciate. This book might sound ridiculous (and it is), but it is also fantastic. " said.

" At first I thought it was weird, Teen Boat? Really? But then I got used to the idea and it turned out to be pretty funny. Although it is set in a high school, I think my middle school students would enjoy reading it. I am always on the look out for good graphic novels to recommend to reluctant readers--I would recommend this one. " said.

" Daffiest premise ever--an otherwise average teen can turn himself into a medium sized boat at will. The authors take that premise and deliver any number of perfectly logical developments and totally wacko twists in this graphic novel. All that keeps it off the top shelf for me is the downright cruel and thoughtless way Teen treats his loyal, obviously smitten best friend Joey (Josephine?). " said.

" I wanted to like this more than I did? From what I knew about it it ("the angst of being a teen! the thrill of being a boat!") seemed like a very tongue-in-cheek satire of teen drama but it's pretty slapsticky. I think tweens and young teens will really love this. Am I too grown up for this? That's a TERRIBLE realization but possibly true. " said.
