JUVENILE FICTION / Comics & Graphic Novels / Humorous
Elephant & Piggie meets Narwhal and Jelly in this hilarious new early-reader graphic novel series about Archie & Reddie, two fox friends who have wild fun! In this third book, the pair are excited about entering a talent show, but will they be able to come up with a winning act?

There’s a talent show happening in town today, and Archie and Reddie really want to win the grand prize: a shiny new wagon! It would be such a help with carrying their books home from the library. But if they’re going to come in first place, they’ll need a super-special act—one that no one’s ever seen before…maybe not even Archie and Reddie! Are they in over their heads, or will they be able to get their act together in time for the show?

Series Overview: Archie & Reddie: I Really Dig Pizza! (Fall 2021)

Archie & Reddie: We Will Find Your Hat! (Fall 2021)

Archie & Reddie: Look What We Can Do! (Spring 2022)

Archie & Reddie #4 (Summer 2022)

PERFECT PAIR: Foxes, cousins, best friends—Archie and Reddie have so much in common, but they’re also so different. Archie is impulsive, hyper, and carefree, and Reddie is methodical, confident, and careful. As they find themselves in one adventure after another, they play off each other perfectly, always emphasizing their strengths, never their weaknesses.

NOT JUST LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY: From the silly hijinks they find themselves in to their wacky personalities and goofy facial expressions, Archie and Reddie are guaranteed to make kids—and adults—giggle nonstop. But with such a strong family-and-friend relationship at the center of this series, the books find the right balance between humor and heart.

AN EARLY-READER GRAPHIC NOVEL: With lively comic-paneled art and simple text (550 words or less), this early-reader graphic novel series is perfect for parents, teachers, and librarians looking for transitional books for their kids who are fans of series like Elephant & Piggie and Narwhal and Jelly but aren’t yet ready for more substantial graphic novels like Dog Man.

SWEET ORIGINS: Much like Winnie-the-Pooh, before Archie and Reddie became characters in a book, they started out as two beloved stuffed animals that belonged to the creators’ daughter. Candy and James provided their voices and performed all sorts of stories to help their child grow, overcome challenges, and simply have fun. Now that their daughter is a bit older, Candy and James felt like it was finally time to share Archie and Reddie with the world.

COMPETITIVE PUB SCHEDULE: We will gain shelf presence quickly, launching with two books in Fall 2020, and a new book every season thereafter (currently four books total).

Praise for the Archie & Reddie series:
 
“A charming early reader comic series. The digital designs provide a fitting backdrop to the utterly engaging narrative. A notable new addition to any beginning reader collection. Ideal for fans of Mo Willems’s Elephant & Piggie series.” School Library Journal on I Really Dig Pizza!
 
“Two friends with enjoyable chemistry populating well-paced panels that propel the physical comedy. Make room for this cute pair on the graphic early reader shelf.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Tightly framed drawings offer plenty of perky graphic pop, and the characters have an eager-eyed expressiveness, snappy dialogue, and bouncy physicality that will pull new readers along.”—Publisher’s Weekly
 
“The foxes’ silly actions and infectious enthusiasm make for a tale that begs to be read and acted out loud.” School Library Journal on Look What We Can Do!
 
“Full of humor and charm, this latest addition to the series is a definite purchase for beginning reader collections, especially ones that focus on comic and graphic novel formats.” —School Library Journal on We Will Find Your Hat!
