WI – Mighty Jack Signing

000000000000000_bhatke_mighty-jack

Cartoonist Ben Hatke appears at the Cudahy Family Library on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 6:30 PM!

Ben Hatke, returns to middle-grade fantasy-adventure with the first of two graphic novels retelling Jack and the Beanstalk. 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.

About the Author: 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.
