Maddy Kettle Adventure of the Thimblewitch by Eric Orchard, Eric Orchard

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. -- io9
