The BOOM! Studios Summer Reading Program continues with this first look at this month’s Dodo from Felipe Nunes.
When Laila’s parents split up, she doesn’t understand why her life has changed, and why her dad never comes by anymore. Lonely and confused, Laila ends up befriending a strange bird that lives in the park by her house. Her friendship with this bird, a dodo named Ralph, takes Laila on a journey she never expected and shows her things about her own world she’d never noticed before.
“Dodo explores an emotional journey of a real-life situation with a fantastical twist that’ll resonate with both adult and middle-grade audiences. It is a graphic novel that is near and dear to our hearts in KaBOOM!,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Felipe brings an emotional depth and nuance to Laila’s story, something many kids and adults will empathize with, that will stick with you long after your first read or, in my case, your fiftieth.”
Dodo arrives on May 30, 2018.
