Cover of Oh My Gods

Oh My Gods GN – Etch puts a fresh and funny spin on Greek mythology. Thirteen-year-old Karen, a New Jersey native, moves to Greece to live with her eccentric, mysterious father, Zed. She starts school at Mt. Olympus Junior High, where she finds her fellow students aren’t as average as she is. They are all gods and goddesses reincarnated as teenagers, and someone is turning them into stone! Being the new girl at school, Karen becomes the main suspect. She must find a way to clear her name with the help of her new school friend deities, while getting to know her father, the king of the Gods, Zeus, and discovering more about who she really is. Mixing mystery with mythology, and filled with fun characters, this first volume is an entertaining take on the Greek myths tailored for middle-grade readers.

Cover of Beak & Ally

Beak And Ally Volume 1 Unlikely Friends GN – Harper Alley introduces an unlikely pair in a new graphic novel series for early readers. Ally the alligator is happy being alone. Beak is a noisy bird who thinks she needs a friend, and that friend is him! The chatty bird choses a nearby tree to build his new nest, and insists that he and Ally will be best friends. He has all kinds of friendship goals in mind, including riding bikes, going to the movies and solving mysteries together. Ally tries to convince him that she’d rather just be alone, but when a Long-Billed Party Pooper crashes Beak’s nest-warming party, she shows him what’s important to her; sticking up for what’s right. Fans of Narwahl and Jelly and emerging readers alike will enjoy this fun and funny buddy comedy.
