Punky Brewster by Lesley Vamos, Joelle Sellner

The overall lighthearted silliness makes for an enjoyable read. An eye-catching cover shows off Punky's spunk and should help this one appeal to all genders. (Booklist). True to the 1980s TV show, this adaptation captures the essence of Punky (Kirkus). Sellner has filled the book with Punky-style quips and comical adventures, while Vamos' lively and colorful illustrations help keep the tone upbeat...An additional purchase for large graphic novel collections. (School Library Journal). The beloved TV series returns in this heartwarming, lushly illustrated story of a brand-new family made from persistence, pluck, and Punky Power! Punky Brewster, a bright eight-year-old girl, has been abandoned and is getting by on the streets of Chicago. Punky thinks she doesn't need help - except from her puppy sidekick, Brandon - but after getting picked up by the police she enters a foster home and starts to search for a family. Punky meets Henry, a long-lost relative, and decides he's the adoptive dad for her. All she has to do is convince the foster home, adoption judges and lawyers, and possibly Henry, himself! Luckily, she's got an unbeatable resource - her limitless reserve of Punky Power!
