Big Baby is a boy named Tony, who finds himself entangled in various adventures including summer camp murders and backyard burials. I'll say it again, Burns is a genius! If you enjoyed the 'twilight zone' or 'naked lunch', then you will love Charles Burns books. ( )

Big Baby is the story of Tony Delmonto, a bald-headed young school-age boy who is referred to as “Big Baby” because of his bald head. Tony is obsessed with science fiction and horror and the comics he reads he believes are real.

This book is definitely not for young (elementary age) children, although the illustrations are magnificent.

Classroom extensions include having each student pick a specific page in the book and write their own dialogue box for what happens next. Another idea would be to have the children write and illustrate their own graphic novel. ( )
