What's in Store? by Pippa Goodhart, Joelle Dreidemy

What happens when you cross a birthday party shopping list with Santa's Christmas catalogue, a witch's child stew recipe and an alien's spacecraft repair inventory? - the answer: one amazing day at the department store. In this madcap visual treat, a wonderfully eclectic mix of shoppers dash around the bustling store, occasionally crossing paths with hilarious and exciting repercussions. The question is: will everyone get what they want? will everyone make it out alive? And will everyone make it to Jo-Jo's party? You'll just have to wait and see what's in store.
