This is acclaimed graphic novelist Tom Gauld's first picture book for children, inspired by a bedtime story he made up for his daughters. In his words, "I was trying to make a book inspired by three different sets of books: The books that I remember enjoying as a child, the books that I watched my daughters enjoying, and the books I enjoy now as an adult. I wanted the book to have its own quirky feeling but also to function like a classic bedtime story."

Sophie is a young witch whose mother and grandmother pressure her to attend the Royal Magic Academy—the best magic school in the realm—even though her magic is shaky at best. To train for her entrance exams, Sophie is sent to relatives she’s never met.

Cousin Sage and Great-Aunt Lan seem more interested in giving Sophie chores than in teaching her magic. Frustrated, Sophie attempts magic on her own, but the spell goes wrong, and she accidentally entangles her magic with the magic of a young water dragon named Lir.

Perfect for fans of Studio Ghibli and The Tea Dragon Society, this is a magically heartwarming graphic novel about self-acceptance and friendship.

Availability: Backordered
Published: Black Sheep - September 7th, 2021

In this wordless story, an ordinary day at the beach transforms into an unforgettable adventure.

A knockout. Samworth's wordless tale twists and turns like the best of suspense films. An everyday beach trip takes a turn when a pair of adventuring kids lead the way into an inverted realm, where plants and bugs lord over them. This book is a feat of illustration, a carnival of color, a mash-up of dreams and reality. I slammed my fist with how good the end was.
--Lulu Miller, author of Why Fish Don't Exist
