We just got advance copies of out latest Adventures in Cartooning graphic novel in the office — Sleepless Knight, by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost.
What’s also exciting is that Sleepless Knight is one of our picture book comics; it’s a book for young readers, but it’s also full of speech balloons and panels! It’s a great transitional story for kids who are just beginning to read.
Here’s the cover. It’s a square!
And here’s the spine.
It has a small bear on it! (The bear features largely into the story. As does Edward, the adorablest horse.)
The endpapers for this book are also adorable — and educational! Each gives you a lesson in drawing one of the main characters from the book.
Here’s the title page.
And here’s a spread! Each page tends to be broken down into three to four large, easy to read panels.
This spread also has marshmallows!
And here’s the back cover.
Sleepless Knight will be on sale in April. We’re excited!
