Ben 10 and Big Hero 6 creator Steven T. Seaglereturns to comics with New Yorker Magazine cartoonist Jason Adam Katzenstein fora new graphic novel!

Reluctant Skye isaccidentally sent to the wrong summer camp. Not wanting to please her"step monster," Skye is dead-set on not fitting in. That won't be aproblem, as everyone at Camp Midnight-with the exception of fellow camper andfast-friend Mia-is a full-fledged monster! The perfect book for fans of RainaTelgemeier's Smile, but wish it had more bowls of gooeyeyeballs.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Skye's looking forward to spending some time with her dad (but not her new stepmom) over the summer, so when she's shuttled off to camp shortly after her arrival, she's more than a little bit peeved. Once she realizes she's been sent to the wrong camp a camp for monsters, no less! she's positively terrified. Luckily, she finds a friend in mysterious Mia; catches the eye of a cute boy (er, werewolf); and the camp director turns out to be less of a witch than she thought (though she's still technically a witch). Though the story is a touch predictable, what Seagle and Katzenstein lack in narrative tension they make up for with bright, zany artwork and cartoonish slapstick humor. In loose, doodling lines and pop-art palettes, Katzenstein's artwork perfectly complements the characters' outsize moods and reactions. A couple of tidy lessons about being true to oneself and not stereotyping monsters add some depth, and an unsolved mystery hints at a sequel. Hand to comics fans looking for lighthearted parody and dark humor.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Seagle (It's a Bird) and New Yorker cartoonist Katzenstein deliver a devilishly fun summer camp story. Their surly heroine, Skye, is furious when her father and wicked-seeming stepmother ship her off to camp while her mother is in Rwanda with Doctors Without Borders. In the rush to get on the bus, Skye winds up bound for Camp Midnight, where she soon realizes that she is out of her element in more ways than one: the campers and staffers are actually witches, werewolves, medusas, and other terrifying beasties. Katzenstein plays lurid shades of chartreuse, teal, crimson, and other ultra-saturated colors against each other to deliciously unsettling effect. Combined with his frenetic linework, checkerboard halftone shading, and intensely exaggerated cartooning, the resulting panels feel like an off-kilter storyboard for the unfolding horror-movie-esque adventure. And while this camp's activities don't start until long after the sun has set, experiences like learning to be true to oneself, making friends, fitting in, and having a first kiss turn out to be pretty universal. "I got kissed by a boy!" Skye gushes late in the story. "Or was I licked by a wolf...?" Ages 9-12. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
