Strawberry-sized sleuths Poppy and Sam are back on the case in this adorable picture book/graphic novel hybrid

It’s a new day in the garden, and Poppy and Sam are paying a visit to their friend Snuggles Molesy. But Snuggles is in a pickle, looking for a lost pair of pretty pink glasses! Sleuths Poppy and Sam begin to investigate: all around the garden, along the shore of the creek, and even inside the pies Snuggles had been baking. Along the way, they ask the other critters they encounter.

Poppy and Sam don’t have much luck finding the glasses, but they do come across a variety of other treasures: a flowered umbrella, a flute, a yellow spinning top, and more. By the end of the story, they set up a whimsical lost and found with all of these objects—and finally find the rosy specs, while their fellow garden friends find misplaced treasures of their own.

The second Poppy and Sam adventure, this picture book/graphic novel hybrid is full of friendly characters, charming details, and a fun and suspenseful storyline that will be sure to delight young readers.

CATHON is an artist and creator of children’s books and comics. She studied visual arts and media at the Université du Québec à Montréal, and is also the author of Poppy and Sam and the Leaf Thief and A Fire Truck for Chuck in addition to several books in French. Cathon lives in Montreal, Quebec.
