Introducing SQUISH--a new graphic novel series about a comic book-loving, twinkie-eating grade school AMOEBA trying to find his place in the world (or at least trying to make it through a school day). Inspired by his favorite comic book hero, SUPER AMOEBA , Squish has to navigate school (bullies detention Principal Planaria ), family (dad: Hates to wear a tie. Secretly listens to heavy metal in the car), and friends (Peggy-rainbows happy all the time and Pod . . . who's . . . well, you just have to meet him). Can Squish save the world--and his friends--from the forces of evil lurking in the hallways? Find out in "Squish: Super Amoeba"--saving the world, one cell at a time.

New York Times:
"An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy."
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:
* "Hilarious. If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does."
"A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure."
