The holidays are approaching so remember, ZAPT! makes a fabulous stocking stuffer for all your nieces and nephews!
TokyoPop is debuting a line of “Manga Readers” – manga being the Japanese art form of graphic novels. These books spare 8- to 12-year-old readers the challenge of having to read from back to front, and from right to left, as with traditional manga. They’re slick, easy to follow and all-action.

But what he really won’t like is getting ZAPT! Armand is about to be inducted into the ranks of the Pan-galactic Order Of Police, where, like it or not, he’ll have to save alien princesses, outwit marauding space thugs and still have to be home in time for dinner! Being a kid is about to get a whole lot harder!
ZAPT! : Volume Two
It’s the continuing adventures of Armand Jones, who’s just been inducted into the ranks of the P.O.O.P Corp to save alien civilizations, defeat invading armadas and battle scurvy space pirates…all before recess!
