    From Sara Varon (Robot Dreams, Bake Sale) comes New Shoes, a heartwarming graphic novel about a donkey on a quest to make the perfect pair of shoes.

    Francis the donkey is the best shoemaker in the village. He uses only the finest materials: coconut wood for the soles, goat’s wool for the insoles, and wild tiger grass for the uppers.

    One day he receives a special order from his favorite singer: Miss Manatee, the queen of calypso. But he’s all out of tiger grass! To make the perfect pair of shoes, Francis must journey deep into the jungle . . . and that means leaving his village for the first time.

    In New Shoes, Sara Varon takes us on a vivid journey into the jungles of South America. From the capybara to the jaguar to the three-toed sloth, Francis meets a variety of animals outside his neighborhood. They’re not so scary when you get to know them!

    Attention all Minecrafters, come join Phoenix as she braves the forests beyond her village in order to save her brother in this exciting graphic novel!

    Phoenix dreams of seeing the world outside the high walls of her village. One day, she takes a risk—a quick hop over the walls—just to see the dark forest she’s heard tales of. It is a magical forest, but Phoenix’s forbidden trip unleashes a monster that attacks her brother, Xander. Her brother survives—but he’s turned into a dreadful, moaning zombie!

    Now Phoenix has no choice. She must leave the village to find his cure. But beyond the cgates are dangers far worse than the slow night-time zombies. Phoenix will have to conquer treacherous enemies of both night and day—as well as her own fears—to find the enchanted golden apple, which is the only hope for her brother to return to his normal self.

    The first graphic novel for Minecrafters by New York Times bestselling author Megan Miller, Quest for the Golden Apple is sure to enchant readers of all ages who love playing Minecraft and who love a story full of action, adventure, and bravery.

    For readers ages 8 to 12 (or for anyone who loves Minecraft), this graphic novel will be the perfect quick and engaging read. Parents and teachers will be especially drawn to the book for their reluctant readers, with more than 750 illustrations and minimal text.

    Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers—picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. In particular, this adventure series is created especially for readers who love the fight of good vs. evil, magical academies like Hogwarts in the Harry Potter saga, and games like Minecraft, Terraria, and Pokemon GO. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
