Summary
For fans of Svetlana Chmakova's Awkward and Raina Telgemeier's Smile comes an inventive new story from Cardboard Kingdom creator Chad Sell about a group of young artists who must work together when one of their own creations becomes a monster.

Drew is just a regular artist. But there's nothing ordinary about her art. Her doodles are mischievous . . . and rarely do they stay in Doodleville, the world she's created in her sketchbook. Instead, Drew's doodles prefer to explore the world outside. But after an inspiring class trip to the Art Institute of Chicago--where the doodles cause a bit too much trouble--Drew decides it's time to take her artistic talents to the next level.
Enter the Leviathan--Levi, for short. He's bigger and better than anything Drew has ever created before. He's a monster, but a friendly one. That is, until Levi begins to wreak havoc on Drew's other doodles--and on the heroes her classmates have dreamt up.
Levi won't be easily tamed, and it seems there is a link between the monster's bad behavior and Drew's feelings. With the help of her loyal art club friends, will she be able to save Doodleville-- and Levi--before it's too late?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Drew's doodles slip off the paper and become her good-natured, if occasionally mischievous, companions. When her art club visits the Chicago Art Institute for inspiration, though, things take a surprisingly dark turn. Drew produces a Leviathan that travels between flat surfaces like its fellow doodles and becomes a terrifying and destructive force to the Doodleville world they inhabit. This, it turns out, is a manifestation of Drew's feelings of anger and insecurity, and it's only with the help of her diverse cast of friends and her own artistic instincts that she tames the inner/outer monster into compromise. Sell (Cardboard Kingdom, 2018) has conceived a heady metaphor, one that proves somewhat unwieldy when not clearly defined. His characters sometimes also miss the mark, repetitive and often overreactive in a way that can undermine emotional authenticity. However, readers will definitely respond to the idea of large emotions that are hard to control, as well as the therapeutic joy of art--likewise Sell's use of encroaching darkness and his luminous figures, warmly rounded but imbued with wonderfully emotive features."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nine-year-old Drew's primary companions, a friendly-looking crew of living Doodles that live in paper town Doodleville, are known to escape into the human world, where they can alter art. Even so, Drew takes them on an art club trip to the Art Institute of Chicago, where they run amok through classic paintings, sitting at the bar in Hopper's Nighthawks and enacting a pillow fight in van Gogh's Arles bedroom. Drew's increasing insecurity about her creations--visualized by Sell (The Cardboard Kingdom) as erratic, sometimes eraserlike scribbles that cut through colorful spreads--spurs her to create leviathan-like Levi: "Something big! Something amazing!" that can compare to her peer group's impressive characters. But when her peers don't understand Levi, Drew's anxiety manifests, turning Levi into a monstrous, art-destroying creature that the club must band together to handle as Drew learns the power of embracing one's style. Sell's caricatured illustrations provide strong action, and single-hue overlays (purples, greens) highlight emotionally charged moments for the friend group, which includes kids of various ethnicities and gender identities. Ages 8--12. Agent: Daniel Lazar, Writers House. (June)"
