“Complex and engaging... I found this graphic novel to be enthralling.” – Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing

There are many verifiable facts concerning 26-year-old Annah Billips. She likes sushi and mountains and piglets, but hates paper cuts and beer breath. She flirts with girls and boys, and loves to travel. She might have a missing sister... or she might be totally insane.

Did Annah invent an imaginary sister named Ginger during her parents’ traumatic divorce? Or did her mad scientist father extract part of her brain and transform it into a living twin? In this whimsical, thought-provoking graphic novel, a host of narrators (including boyfriends, girlfriends, neighbors, bystanders, magicians, and passing animals) try their best to unlock the mystery of Annah... and the Gingerbread Girl.

“I’m absolutely in love with
Gingerbread Girl, and I’m already dying for another Tobin and Coover collaboration.” – Greg McElhatton, Read About Comics

“Thought provoking, interesting and fun... The story examines psychology, imagination, human behaviour, childhood, fantasy, interaction between people, friendship, and love all in 110 pages and yet it never feels heavy or brooding, but always light, interesting and cheerful.” – Phil Oldham,
Comic Buzz

“A delight to read on every page... It has charm to burn.” – Hillary Brown, Paste Magazine

“Compelling.” – Grace Evans,
Shameless

“The pictures are pretty! There’s a talking pigeon!” – Carolyn Yates,

“An engaging, breezy read... Gingerbread Girl captures the romance of being young and kooky in a hip city, while acknowledging that sometimes what seems like conscious eccentricity masks deeper issues.”
