Description


The first book in the Nnewts series follows the story of Herk, a lovable Nnewt who longs for stronger legs, something his mother and father wish they could give him. When his quaint village is attacked by the reptile Lizzarks, he's forced to flee his home and leave behind the only life he's ever known. Now, all alone and on the run, Herk navigates a dangerous world filled with strange creatures and mysterious wonders, where friends are few and an evil lord is in hot pursuit.

*"TenNapel has crafted another rip-roaring adventure with wide audience appeal."
--SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review

Praise for CARDBOARD

* "An exceptionally seamless blend of action and philosophy, two elements that usually do not mix easily; TenNapel handles this masterfully. Utterly brilliant."--KIRKUS, starred review

"A boldly imaginative and ambitious tale."--THE HORN BOOK

"[TenNapel] provides moments of great sweetness and heaps and heaps of bizarre fun, a quality that has become his veritable trademark."--BOOKLIST

Praise for TOMMYSAURUS REX

"TenNapel unleashes an array of charmingly off-kilter characters and has mastered a cartoonish style that preserves a sense of grit while lending some emotional weight to match the story."--BOOKLIST

"It's a premise worthy of a loony Saturday morning cartoon, complete with bulgy-eyed characters that nearly bounce off the full-color pages, but underlying the fun is a potent and affecting story about facing death and growing up."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Unpredictable and engaging, this will be a popular pick for reluctant readers and graphic-novel fans."--SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
