Synopsis

Julia's House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke

Julia's housemates have to do their chores - even if they're fairies, goblins, mermaids, and dragons! When Julia and her walking house come to town, she likes everything about her new neighbourhood except how quiet it is! So Julia puts a sign up: Julia's House for Lost Creatures. Soon she's hosting goblins, mermaids, fairies, and even a dragon. Quiet isn't a problem anymore for Julia...but getting her housemates to behave themselves is!

Reviews

Hatke fills the comic-book-style, picture-book-sized pages with lovely watercolor illustrations of a menagerie of creatures . . . Imaginative tots will love Julia's resourcefulness and hospitality. --Booklist

From the author of Zita the Spacegirl comes an enjoyable blend of picture book, graphic novel, and fairy tale prose . . . The gentle flow of the story will draw in readers, and Julia's problem-solving will have them giggling as they nod along at her choices. A wonderful addition. --School Library Journal

Hatke steps from graphic novels (Zita the Spacegirl) to the picture-book format with aplomb, blending tropes from both worlds for a sweetly weird domestic adventure. Readers will want to move right in. --Kirkus Reviews

In his first picture book, Hatke (the Zita the Spacegirl series) crafts a funny, fantastical scenario with a girl hero in charge. --Publisher's Weekly
