Here’s a look at a refreshing new graphic novel from Little Foot Publishing: CrumbSnatchers, written by Stephanie Butto and illustrated by Evan Keeling, and due out next fall. The cover did not fill me with delight, but the sample pages did; they have a whimsical, off-balance sense of humor, like The Far Side for kids. Check these ones out below the cut (warning: several large images), and if you like them, there are more at the creators’ MySpace page.
Here’s the blurb:
Nonsensical, upside down craziness! Tag along with Zoey, the cutest girl in school and messy hair Elliott as they run amok with their friends the Frog King, the devious Koala Bear, and a gang of penguins known as the AnkleBiters. Where imagination reigns and anything can happen.
