Quinnelope and the Cookie King Catastrophe Vol. 1is HF Brownfield and Kayla Coombs’ debut graphic novel. Kayla Coombs’ has won awards for her artwork for clients including The Kelly Clarkson Show, Sony Music and ABC. Her art went viral after a man hired her to animate a “Sleeping Beauty” sequence for his proposal to his fiance. Featuring large panels, dyslexia-friendly lettering, colorful artwork, and light text per page, the Quinnelope series is a quick and fun-filled read.

In The Cookie King Catastrophe, Quinnelope wakes up one morning to learn all the cookies in her kingdom have gone missing. The bakery and grocery store aisles are full of cakes but NO COOKIES. What is a cookie-obsessed queen supposed to do?! Solve the mystery of the cookie catastrophe, of course! Along with her dutiful butler, Bub, and loyal companion, Star, the trio set out on a mission to find the missing cookies and restore these tasty treats to Pleasant Towne once again. But their quest isn’t as easy as it sounds… They’ll need to battle through a cookie-dough volcano, confront the chocolate chipmunk mountain, face off against egg-splosive enemies, and more in order to track down the missing Cookie King. Will Quinnelope be able to bring the Cookie King and his delicious cookies back to her kingdom, or will she be doomed to eat crummy cakes forever? 

Full of vibrant colors, imaginative adventures, and 100% goofiness, Quinnelope and the Cookie King Catastrophe Vol. 1 drops this September.
