PEANUT is out now!

After working on this project for about 3 years, it's finally out: PEANUT, a graphic novel written by Ayun Halliday and illustrated by yours truly, and published by Schwartz & Wade / Random House.
Here you can see Peanut out in the wild, at Forbidden Planet NYC, amongst the new publications of the week.
The book has 208 fully illustrated pages, and is printed in two spot colors, a very dark indigo and a bright pinkish red.

The story is about a young girl who moves to a new town and struggles to fit in and to make new friends. To make herself more interesting, she tells everybody she has a deadly peanut allergy. Of course, her lies circle out of control.

Since beginning of this month it's available in any bookstore near you. Ask them to order it for you, if they don't have it in stock.

There have been some nice reviews already, including a Starred Review by Publisher's Weekly. Peanut is also a Junior Library Guild Selection.

You can also order it from IndieBound and Amazon.

My advance copies, yay!
