The Picks:

Extraordinary A Story Of An Ordinary Princess TP – Dark Horse introduces a princess unlike any other by being just like everyone else. When Princess Basil was born, her parents, the King and Queen, invited to the faeries to come and bless her. Only one showed up; grumpy, old, Melvina. Instead of the traditional gifts of beauty or grace, Melvina blesses Basil with being ordinary. After years of being ordinary in a family that is extraordinary, Basil goes on a quest to track down the faerie that “blessed” her. She learns the solution to her problem may be as simple as finding a magic ring, nothing worth having is that easy. Joined by the shepherd Hudson, Basil takes on gnomes, a badger and a couple of snarky foxes in order to be less ordinary. Inspired by the novel The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye, creator Cassie Anderson shows that even ordinary people are capable of doing extraordinary things.

Red Panda And Moon Bear Volume 1 TP – IDW Publishing debuts some new defenders! Red Panda and Moon Bear are siblings who defend their community. They rescue lost cats, scold bullies and solve mysteries, all before Mama and Papa get home. But when the mysteries get EXTRA mysterious, it will take all of their imagination, and the help of some new friends, to stop the spooks, supervillains, alien invaders and time warps, and find the cause behind them before the whole world goes crazy. Red Panda and Moon Bear features a combination of cartoon action and magical realism as seen in such shows as The Powerpuff Girls and Spy Kids. Reluctant readers will like the stand alone chapter-length adventures, while all readers will enjoy how they are woven together into a stunning climax.
