New book!

We just got advance copies of Jay Hosler’s wonderful upcoming graphic novel Last of the Sandwalkers in the mail, and it looks splendid!  We can’t wait to share this book with you.  It’s full of beetles!  And also science.

Our main beetle-character is named Lucy, and adorable!  And she’s right here on the cover.

She’s also on the spine!  Spine beetles.  In this spine picture, she is being a scientist and recording data.

Here are the spines all lined up!  What an attractive book this is.

The flaps are blue!  I think they are very handsome.  (They’re also full of beetles.)

Our protagonist-beetle-scientist Lucy heads out to the desert to explore.

What she finds there is not what she expected.

Jay Hosler, the author of Last of the Sandwalkers, is a biologist, so he has included lots of actual science in this book!  There are even annotations.

And references!

Here is the back flap!  More beetle-science is occurring.
