“Maddy Kettle... looks fantastic: every panel exudes quirky, gorgeous atmosphere.” – Glen Weldon, NPR

Eleven-year-old Maddy loved working in her parents’ bookstore... especially when joined by her pet flying toad Ralph. But that was before the mysterious Thimblewitch turned her mom and dad into kangaroo rats!

Now Maddy’s on the adventure of a lifetime. To save her parents, she’ll need to sneak past an army of spider-goblins, scarecrow warriors, and much more... Fortunately, an assortment of new friends await, including the cloud cartographers Harry and Silvio, a bear and raccoon who explore the world in their moon-balloon. They’ll help her along the way, but in the end, the fate of everyone will depend on Maddy’s courage, compassion, and creativity.

Full of surprises and stunning artwork,
Maddy Kettle is a truly magical debut for Spectrum-Award-winning cartoonist Eric Orchard. Climb aboard and let your imagination soar!

“A stream of imaginative twists and aerial wonders, flowing along easily in a mix of lucidly drawn action and pithy dialogue.” –
Kirkus Reviews

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“Maddy Kettle is something entirely unique amongst the current crop of children’s comics... [Orchard's] sense of imagination makes each page a joy to examine and should keep all readers engrossed.”

•Comics retailer

“I have been looking forward to this first Maddy Kettle book for months … The artwork is simply gorgeous throughout, from the cosy warmth of the Kettle family in their bookstore to those star-bright, deep indigo night skies, or the dark menace of Spider Goblins, red eyes glowing in the dark, or the wonder of the Cloudscape Harry and Silvio share with Maddy. This is a truly wonderful book for the young reader, and those of us who still nourish our inner child and who never lost that sense of wonder. Adventure, friends, family, both scares and wondrous delights await.”
