" Maddy Kettle ... looks fantastic: every panel exudes quirky,
gorgeous atmosphere. " - NPR

Eleven-year-old Maddy
loved working in her parents' bookstore... especially when joined by her pet
flying toad Ralph. But that was before the mysterious Thimblewitch turned her
mom & dad into kangaroo rats!
Now Maddy's on the adventure of a
lifetime. To save her parents, she'll need to sneak past an army of
spider-goblins, scarecrow warriors, and much more... Fortunately, an assortment
of new friends await, including the cloud cartographers Harry and Silvio, a bear
and raccoon who explore the world in their moon-balloon. They'll help her along
the way, but in the end, the fate of everyone will depend on Maddy's courage,
compassion, and creativity.
Full of surprises and stunning artwork, Maddy
Kettle is a truly magical debut for Spectrum-Award-winning cartoonist Eric
Orchard. Climb aboard and let your imagination
soar!

"The tale is a
stream of imaginative twists and aerial wonders, flowing along easily in a mix
of full-page scenes and large sequential panels of lucidly drawn action and
pithy dialogue. A sweet-mannered debut with plenty of lift." --
Kirkus

"Quirky, beautifully illustrated, and
frankly looks like it's going to be an instant classic. Don't miss it." --
