Calling all kids!  Grab some paper and something to draw with!  

Join us for a reading and drawing lesson with Eisner Award-winning cartoonist James Kochalka who returns with another uproariously funny caper for Banana Fox to sniff out in Banana Fox and the Gummy Monster Mess.

Oopsie Doo!

Banana Fox has a real mess on his hands this time! When the jail is left in ruins and Sour Grapes is on the run, Banana Fox has very few clues to work with to find him. He's coming across a number of red herrings, so it's clear that something fishy is going on... With the help of Sharyanna, William, and Sour Grapes Jr. (?!), can Banana Fox get to the bottom of this caper, or will the baddies run wild forever?

James Kochalka is one of the most unique and prolific cartoonists working in America today. His comics have been published internationally, and he’s developed animated cartoons for Nickelodeon. Among his best-known work is the Johnny Boo series, for which he won an Eisner Award in 2019. In 2011, James became the first official Vermont Cartoonist Laureate. He and his wife, Amy, continue to live in Vermont, where they raised their family of two boys and too many cats.
