Knuckle & Potty Destroy Happy World

James Proimos. Holt, $12.99 (80p) ISBN 978-0-8050-9155-7
Knuckle, a pink tiger, and his good friend, Potty, a green bear, have grown tired of being cute and adorable in this fun, goofy children’s book. It’s actually a book within a book—Knuckle and Potty are characters in other (madeup) children’s books and are humiliated by how adorable they are. It gets worse for them—their next book is going to be Tiger and Bear Go to Happy World, something they just can’t stomach, so they make attempts to either escape the book world entirely or to destroy Happy World. This imaginative and humorous story is something of a chapter book/graphic novel hybrid. The mix and match of prose and comics works just fine and is a unique way of telling the story. Author Proimos has created shows for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and his whimsy and humor show that he has a knack for funny, child-friendly storytelling. Ages 7–10. (May)
