Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-The oldest in her family, Maggie is often left attention-starved among her younger twin brothers and working parents, especially now that her mom is pregnant, but a puppy will change that. However, the much-anticipated trip to the animal shelter ends with Maggie itching, sneezing, and breaking out in hives-turns out she is allergic to anything with fur or feathers. A puppy is out of the question, and she must endure allergy shots. Maggie makes a best friend in new neighbor Claire but feels insecure and even jealous-Claire's father seems to let her do anything she wants, and when Claire adopts a puppy, Maggie is sent into a tailspin. Still, Maggie perseveres, realizing that no one's life is perfect, learning to live with allergies, and looking forward to her new sibling's arrival. Readers will root for this realistic and relatable fifth grader, who's capable of kindness well as envy and self-doubt. Lloyd folds in information about allergy tests, anaphylaxis, EpiPens, and other facts that Maggie and her friend Sebastian, who also has allergies, recite to each other. Layouts rely on three to four large panels per page, creating a smooth visual flow; Nutter's muted, uncluttered art has a cozy feel. Maggie and her family are brown-skinned, Claire is Asian, and Sebastian is white. VERDICT Maggie makes new pals here-she'll find even more friends in elementary and middle school libraries, where readers will easily identify with her trials and accomplishments.-Thomas Maluck, Richland Lib., SCα(c) Copyright 2011.

Praise for Allergic:

Instant Bestseller

School Library Journal Best Graphic Novel of the Year

American Library Association Best Graphic Novel for Children

New York Public Library Best Book for Kids

"There's a lot packed into this graphic novel beyond the allergy story line: how family dynamics change with a new baby's arrival, how kids struggle to fit in and find friends. But while it addresses serious issues and emotions, Allergic, unlike hives and sneezing, is mostly madcap fun." -- The New York Times

"Allergic is the sweetest story you'll read all year. A touching chronicle of a young girl's severe allergies woven into a meaningful journey of friendship, family, and self-discovery." -- Terri Libenson, New York Times bestselling author of Invisible Emmie

"A heartachingly enjoyable tale of resilience." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Readers will root for this realistic and relatable fifth grader, who's capable of kindness as well as envy and self-doubt... readers will easily identify with her trials and accomplishments." -- School Library Journal

"Vibrant... easy to recommend." -- Booklist

"Warm and well-paced... an encouraging tale for young readers engaging with the world of pets, family, and friendships." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Allergic Audiobook:

American Library Association Notable Children's Recording

★ "A first-rate full-cast audio treatment… Thanks to expertly mixed recording effects and a bouncy music score, the production sounds like a radio drama: overlapping voices, yipping dogs, and multitude of noises." -- Booklist, starred review

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Favorite?
Reviewed in the United States on July 11, 2021
While I’m not by any means a “middle grade reader” so much as I am a young adult, I still enjoyed this story a lot! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a kind, lighthearted story about a dog-loving girl with allergies.

I bought the Kindle e-book version.

#1 Story (no spoilers):
I’m a huge graphic novel fan as well as an art student, so I’m always on the lookout for new books to read/ get inspiration from. Initially when I saw the solicits for this book, I wasn’t sure how a story about a girl with allergies would really be engaging. It just seemed like a rather flat concept. But I decided to give it a shot, and I actually liked it a lot more than anticipated! In fact, I’ve read it twice now. :) the story follows ten year old Maggie as she discovers she has developed a severe allergy to animals just as she is about to adopt a puppy for her birthday. Some reviewers say that the story is a little “random” with the fact that her mom is also having a baby, but honestly, I think it ties the story together perfectly. All in all, the book seems to be about change, so I think including that bit was important. (It also bears some thematic significance at the end.) One criticism: I wish that Maggie’s relationship to the character Sebastian was developed more. It seemed a little rushed, and the only defining trait I could really gather from him was that he “also had allergies”. The last chapter also felt really quick and read more like an epilogue than an actual part of the story. But I suppose that was intentional, so I can’t really knock it.

CONTENT WARNING: As treatment for her allergies, Maggie is consistently shown receiving a series of allergy shots. I actually had to avert my gaze on those pages because I have a huge needle phobia and it made me a little anxious. 😅 That’s just me being squirmy, but I think it’s still worth mentioning if you or your kid are sensitive to that kind of thing.

#2 the art:
The artwork in the book was lovely and had a nice color pallet. It’s not as “anime” as some graphic novels these days, which I think is perfectly fine. I just like that the style is unique and consistent.

Final thoughts: I give it 4.5 out of 5. I think this book definitely works for the age range it’s meant for, and then beyond. The art was engaging, and the story was well written! 🙌🏽 Well done!
