Preview: Dragon Puncher 2
Top Shelf is debuting two children’s books at Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland, this weekend, but as a public service to those of you who couldn’t make the trip, we are going to present previews of both this weekend.
James Kochalka is one of those rare creators who can make books that resonate for kids (Johnny Boo) and adults (American Elf). Dragon Puncher: Island, the second book in this series, is definitely a kid book, with lots of punching and slapping and silliness (but no one actually getting hurt). Check out this preview, and then check out the book, which is part of Top Shelf’s Kids Club line and is being released this month.
And stay tuned for another preview tomorrow!
