Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends for Bahia de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahia de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake — and her own.

Raina Telgemeier has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible.

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.

KS – Mighty Jack Signing

Press Release:

Watermark Books & Cafe will host author Ben Hatke for a reading and signing of his book Mighty Jack on Friday, September 30, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

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 at the flea market, Maddy does talk to tell Jack to trade their mom’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made.

What starts as a normal little garden out back behind the house quickly grows up into a wild, magical jungle with tiny onion babies running amok, huge, pink pumpkins that bite, and, on one moonlit night that changes everything a dragon.

BEN HATKE’S first graphic novel was Zita the Spacegirl. He has published comics stories in the Flight series as well as Flight Explorer. In addition to writing and drawing comics, he also paints in the naturalist tradition and, occasionally, performs one-man fire shows. Hatke lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.
