Description


When Julia and her walking house come to town, she likes everything about her new neighborhood except how quiet it is! So Julia puts a sign up: "Julia's House for Lost Creatures." Soon she's hosting goblins, mermaids, fairies, and even a dragon. Quiet isn't a problem anymore for Julia...but getting her housemates to behave themselves is!

The simple, sweet text of this picture book by New York Times Best-Selling Zita the Spacegirl author/illustrator Ben Hatke is perfectly balanced by his lush, detailed, immersive watercolor illustrations.

Praise For…


Hatke fills the comic-book-style, picture-book-sized pages with lovely watercolor illustrations of a menagerie of creatures . . . Imaginative tots will love Julia's resourcefulness and hospitality. Booklist

From the author of Zita the Spacegirl comes an enjoyable blend of picture book, graphic novel, and fairy tale prose . . . The gentle flow of the story will draw in readers, and Julia's problem-solving will have them giggling as they nod along at her choices. A wonderful addition. School Library Journal

Hatke steps from graphic novels (Zita the Spacegirl) to the picture-book format with aplomb, blending tropes from both worlds for a sweetly weird domestic adventure. Readers will want to move right in. Kirkus Reviews

In his first picture book, Hatke (the Zita the Spacegirl series) crafts a funny, fantastical scenario with a girl hero in charge. Publisher's Weekly

This powerhouse teen graphic novel follows Becca, the new girl at school, who is immediately chosen to join the coolest clique of girls in her school. These girls are eerily close-knit and hold a secret, one that Becca is soon pulled into: the coolest girls in school are werewolves, preying on boys who take advantage of girls without consent! Squad is a classic over-the-top teen-flick storyline with a fabulous cauldron brew of horror, queer representation, and searingly relevant commentary on consent and predation, featuring young women taking back their power and holding boys accountable. The perfect read for the next full moon!
