Description


Kat Leyh's Snapdragon is a magical realist graphic novel about a young girl who befriends her town’s witch and discovers the strange magic within herself.

Snap's town had a witch.

At least, that’s how the rumor goes. But in reality, Jacks is just a crocks-wearing, internet-savvy old lady who sells roadkill skeletons online—after doing a little ritual to put their spirits to rest. It’s creepy, sure, but Snap thinks it’s kind of cool, too.

They make a deal: Jacks will teach Snap how to take care of the baby opossums that Snap rescued, and Snap will help Jacks with her work. But as Snap starts to get to know Jacks, she realizes that Jacks may in fact have real magic—and a connection with Snap’s family’s past.

Praise For…


"Full of magic and humor, this intersectional, layered tale offers joyful and affirming depictions of social outsiders and comfortably complicated families." —Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review

“Snapdragon is a unique and perfect story about a witch in the woods, girls who live in a trailer park, and the unexpected web of connections tying everyone together. It’s a book about finding your power, in more ways than one. I laughed and cried, and you will, too!” —Molly Knox Ostertag, author of the Witch Boy series

“An absolute treasure. It’s kind, vibrant, and alive, with characters you’ll love immediately—I had to reread it right away, because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye yet! An unforgettable story about loving ourselves, those around us, and the world we inhabit.” —Gale Galligan, author of the Kristy’s Big Day graphic novel

“Snapdragon is the shero for the girl in every reader, casting her magic and fire on every panel, every page. Volume 2, please!” —Rita Williams-Garcia, author of the Gaither Sisters series
