Shawn Pryor Launches a Kickstarter for Cash & Carrie – Book Two: Summer Sleuths

The all-readers graphic novel Cash & Carrie returns! The first book was published by Action Lab Entertainment back in 2016. In this second book, the kids go on a trip to Summer Camp Sobol.

Cash & Carrie – Book Two contains 96 pages of all-new stories and content featuring up-and-coming talents.
