KY – Mighty Jack Signing

000000000000000_bhatke_mighty-jackBen Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl, Little Robot) appears at Louisville Free Public Library on Monday, September 26, 2016 at 6:30 PM to present MIGHTY JACK! RSVP here…

Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: Summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever.

But then, one day, she does talk. Maddy tells Jack in no uncertain terms to trade their mom’s car for a box of magic beans. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made. The little garden behind his house is about to become home to tiny onion babies running amok, dangerous biting cabbages, and, in a fiery cliff-hanger at the end of this first volume: a dragon.

Ben Hatke is the author and illustrator of the New York Times-bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy, the picture books Julia’s House for Lost Creatures and Nobody Likes a Goblin, and the graphic novel Little Robot. He lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters. benhatke.com
