The Happy Shop | Exclusive Preview
Today we have an exclusive preview of The Happy Shop by Brittany Long Olsen, a middle-grade graphic novel about a store that sells happiness. In jars. When Darcy accidentally breaks a jar, the shopkeepers, Frida and Flora, have her make it up to them by helping out around the store, including collecting the happy feelings herself. As she goes about this intriguing new work, though, Darcy questions whether happiness is the only emotion worth selling. Oni Press will publish The Happy Shop on February 13, but you can check out our exclusive advance preview right now—and see how happiness is captured in the wild.
