A new book from Craig Thompson is always an all-too-infrequent big deal, and with good reason. Craig is a master craftsman, one of the best storytellers working in comics today. So we’re very excited to announce a Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition for his new all-ages graphic novel, Space Dumplins!
Craig, creator of Goodbye Chunky Rice, Habibi and Blankets, has brought all his warmth, wit and formidable talent together to create an amazing all ages book: Space Dumplins! It takes the themes of family, friendship, and loyalty and places them into an intergalactic adventure, complete with wacky aliens, brilliant spaceships, and even a bit of reflective commentary on the state of our environment.
‘For Violet Marlocke, family is the most important thing in the whole galaxy. So when her father goes missing while on a hazardous job, she can’t just sit around and do nothing. To get him back, Violet throws caution to the stars and sets out with a group of misfit friends on a quest to find him. But space is big and dangerous, and she soon discovers that her dad has been swallowed by a giant, planet-eating whale. With her father’s life on the line, nothing is going to stop Violet from trying to rescue him and keep her family together.’
