Jellaby: The Lost Monster

Quiet but bright Portia has just moved to a new neighborhood with her mom. Adjusting to life without a father is hard enough, but school is boring and her classmates are standoffish -- and even Portia's mom is sort of distant.

Book Dragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center - Terry Hong

"Poignantly, resonantly woven into the adventure are contemporary difficulties and challenges that too many children face today: while the bogeyman and monsters might sound fantastical, nightmares can be too real, from missing parents to relentless bullying to too many children raising themselves in our overscheduled society. Imagination and friendship are often today’s babysitters and companions; how grateful are we for the superbly engaging, encouraging variety – oversized, cuddly, loyal purple monsters included." - Book Dragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center

Kean Soo

Kean Soo

Born in England and raised in Hong Kong, Kean Soo settled in Canada, where he planned to embark on a career in electrical engineering. However, he discovered that he'd rather draw comics instead. Kean began posting his comics on the internet in 2002, and later became an assistant editor and regular contributor to the all-ages FLiGHT anthologies. His online work has been nominated for several awards, including an Eisner Award nomination for Jellaby. Kean likes carrots, but not nearly as much as he likes tuna sandwiches, usually with lots and lots of wasabi mayonnaise.
