This morning over at Kirkus, I’ve got two very funny picture books. That is here. I’ll have art from each book here at 7-Imp next week.

* * *

Last week, I wrote a graphic-novel round-up here. Today, I’ve got a bit of art from each book — Eric Orchard’s Bera the One-Headed Troll (First Second, August 2016); Raina Telgemeier’s Ghosts (Scholastic, September 2016); Jeffrey Brown’s Lucy & Andy Neanderthal (Crown, August 2016); Øyvind Torseter’s The Heartless Troll (Enchanted Lion, September 2016); and Ben Hatke’s Mighty Jack (First Second, September 2016);

Enjoy!
