Set to be published under the company’s Perfect Square imprint, the latest BRAVEST WARRIORS title was written by Chris “Doc” Wyatt with illustrations by Corin Howell. The chapter book-style release presents multiple story options that give readers a variety of possible narrative options to decide the course of the plot. BRAVEST WARRIORS: THIS WAY OR THAT – THE GREAT CORE CAPER is rated ‘A’ for All Ages and will carry an MSRP of $7.99 U.S. / $9.99 CAN.
In THE GREAT CORE CAPER, the planet Goober-Delta-9 will lose orbit if its stolen planetary core is not returned. Where is that core? In the most secure vault in the Galaxy – beneath SID BEEMER-BOOF’S FUN PLANET, the biggest amusement park in the known universe. The Bravest Warriors must recruit a daring team, including Plum, Catbug, President Memory Donk, Professor Brain Dog 7 and the Emotion Lord, to help them on their mission. Each team member must play their part in order to pull off the most outrageous heist of all time! And on EVERY page, the reader is in complete control of what happens next!
“The galaxy-hopping band of Bravest Warriors take off in a great new way for their first ever THIS WAY OR THAT adventure that lets the reader decide exactly how the story unfolds,” says Beth Kawasaki, Senior Editorial Director. “Everyone who worked on THE GREAT CORE CAPER is a BRAVEST WARRIORS fan, and editor Joel Enos and the creative team were thrilled to pay homage to the classic adventure books from when they were kids! Chris Wyatt’s hilarious and eccentric story paired with Corin Howell’s endearing illustrations captures the BRAVEST WARRIORS spirit, and gets better and better with repeated readings. Become part of the action and help decide just how the teenage heroes will save a planet in peril!”
