Join Judd Winick on another adventure in the New York Times bestselling Hilo series that The New York Times says "can be enjoyed by the entire family." and  Gene Luen Yang, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, says is “high energy and hilarious.”

Has Hilo finally met his match in Book 4, Waking the Monsters? Mega Robot Monsters are suddenly waking up all over and they're too big and too strong for Hilo to fight on his own! Luckily, he doesn't have to! He has Gina and some brand new super powers on his side! Being heroes can be super fun - but it can also be super dangerous! And the closer Hilo and Gina get to saving their world from the monsters -- the closer Hilo gets to the dark secret of his past. Does he really want to know? Do we?
