“While evocative of other children’s literature, it’s not quite like anything else… a fun, funny, friendly adventure of a strange assortment of characters dealing with a stranger-still problem” - School Library Journal
“A charming blend of Enid Blyton whimsy and Moominvalley strangeness.” - Publisher’s weekly
In the spirit of Hergé's Tintin or Carl Barks' Uncle Scrooge, Robert Goodin's The Kurdles is an all-ages comic spiced up with a teaspoon of strange. Sally is a teddy bear who gets separated from her owner while on a drive in the country. Desperate to find her way home, she stumbles upon Kurdleton, home to a most peculiar group of characters in the midst of a crisis; their forest house has grown hair, eyes, and a mouth! The creatures work with their new friend to keep Kurdleton from growing legs and running away! Goodin, an animation industry veteran (American Dad,Rugrats), delivers a timeless classic in his debut graphic novel, introducing an unforgettable and charming cast of characters. Printed in an oversized format to showcase Goodin's stunning, hand-painted artwork, The Kurdles will capture the imagination of both parents and children.
