    • The Cardboard Kingdom, Chad Sell
      Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers, 9781524719388, June 5, 2018 (Middle Grade)

      The Cardboard Kingdom is a clever and fun celebration of self-expression and imagination. With short, graphic vignettes of the different kids in the neighborhood—and the alter egos they develop through their cardboard costumes and creativity—we get to know a bit about the diverse range of characters in Any Neighborhood, U.S.A."

      -Nicole Yasinsky, Novel. (Memphis, TN)

      “Aside from being cute as all heck and sweet enough to cause cavities, this collection of interwoven tales (all surrounding a neighborhood and the children within it) is riddled with lovely, thoughtful, important messages. I will be buying a copy of The Cardboard Kingdom for every child I babysit for, and do not plan to leave them alone until they’ve read the entire thing!”


      -Louise Marshall, Rakestraw Books (Danville, CA)

      “Nintendo Labo? Nah. I raise you a Cardboard Kingdom. This delightful graphic novel is a game of Dungeons & Dragons, a superhero story, and a kaiju match all in one. Any nerdy, imaginative kid will get a kick out of this read; plus, it boasts a truly diverse set of characters that deal with all sorts of problems but find solutions through their friendships and cardboard craft.”


      -Destenie Fafard, Cellar Door Books (Riverside, CA)
