Donald Duck & Friends: Feathers of Fury TP – This new trade features some high-flying King Fu action! A lazy day with his nephews sends Donald Duck into a dreamscape of the far east where he is the newest martial arts movie star. The feather fly as he must take on some seemingly familiar foes in order to save Daisy! But being a Kung Fu master might more trouble than it’s worth. With plenty of high-kicks and hi-jinks, kids will really enjoy this comedic take on the martial arts genre. You can see a preview at Comixology.
Owly & Wormy: Friends All Aflutter HC – Top Shelf continues their Owly line with a storybook for pre-readers. Owly and Wormy want to see butterflies. They get a milkweed plant from Mrs. Raccoon’s nursery that is supposed to attract butterflies. But instead, they get chubby, green bugs. Will they ever find the butterflies? Only time will tell. This wordless book will appeal to the younger kids with bold graphics and a fun story. It will also teach them a few things about metamorphosis, giving them a firm footing on the idea. This book would be a great addition to an pre-school or elementary school library.
