Baloney and Friends

Baloney and Friends

Three-time Theodor Seuss Geisel Award recipient Greg Pizzoli launches a full-color graphic novel series about four funny friends that Dav Pilkey declares “will inspire young readers to write and draw their own stories”!

Meet Baloney! He’s the star of this book, along with his best buddies: empathetic Peanut the horse, sensible Bizz the bumblebee, and grumpy Krabbit — he’d rather not be here, but what can you do?

In this graphic novel for newly independent readers, Baloney and friends step into the spotlight and embody all the charm of childhood in three short tales and three mini-comics that invite readers to join the fun! Giggle with Baloney as he performs some questionable magic, give him a boost when a case of the blues gets him down, cheer him on as he braves the swimming pool, and at the end, learn to draw all the characters with clear step-by-step instructions!

“A sure bet for Elephant and Piggie fans who are ready for the next step up or want to make the move to comics.”Booklist

“Kids will gobble up Baloney!”–Ben Clanton, creator of Narwhal and Jelly series

“Porcine-ly-perfect”–Laurie Keller, Geisel Award-winning author of We Are Growing!

"Greg Pizzoli does it again! These delightfully funny friends will inspire young readers to write and draw their own stories."—Dav Pilkey, creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series
 
"Kids will gobble up Baloney!"Ben Clanton, creator of the Narwhal and Jelly series

 
"Porcine-ly-perfect!"—Laurie Keller, Geisel Award-winning author of We Are Growing!

 
"Wild exuberance...will draw young readers right in. The breathlessness of the stories is given form in brightly colored, big-eyed characters, who...exude clear, accessible personalities. Pizzoli has managed to bring his picture book energy into comics form with a zing...making this the rare comic that serves as a fun and easy read-aloud. A sure bet for Elephant and Piggie fans who are ready for the next step up or want to make the move to comics."—Booklist

 
"An amiable new graphic novel series...Pizzoli's approachable art style communicates emotions and personalities through exaggerated facial expressions that should be clear to readers moving into chapter books."—Publishers Weekly
