100 creatures appear on earth. You’re gonna wanna capture them all!

Tamzen isn't happy: her dad is always busy in his lab, she doesn't exactly have a lot of friends, and to top it off, she's in trouble with the Rangers for going off into the wilderness without permission. But when a creature unlike anything she's ever seen appears unexpectedly in the forest, Tamzen sets off on an adventure with lab intern Jory and Ranger Teddy in search of answers...and what they find may be more than they can handle alone. Join the unlikeliest team of heroes ever on this beautiful, mysterious journey through a very wild world.

From the blockbuster team of Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt (Tiny Kitten Teeth), and featuring brilliant color work from Katy Farina (Steven Universe, Rick & Morty) comes a fully-painted comic book that takes kids deep into the mysterious world of the Capture Creatures!


This is a graphic novel readers of all ages can enjoy. With quirky, adventurous characters, to the creatures they discover / find, and the island setting they're on, there's definitely a little something for everyone in this book. The mix of Frank Gibson's writing, and Becky Dreistadt's illustrations are spot on, making each panel on each page engaging. This book reminded what I loved about reading the Sunday comics as a kid. 

This book is great for reluctant readers, and makes for a great summer reading. It's fun, short, quick read. If you're like us, you may end up re-reading it as soon as you finish it the first time, just to look at all the pictures. Some of the pictures at the end of this book are definitely frame worthy. This book is one I think fans of Pokemon, The Amazon World Gumball, and Steven Universe will enjoy. There's a little something from each of those that felt reminiscent in this book. 

Here's a sneak peak into the book:

  1. The larger concern again is not the sheer availability of Breitling, but rather the unknowing consumer accidentally buying one Breitling watches,eBay in the past was littered with, but that is no longer the case. There are probably Replica Valentino Handbagsmasquerading as the real thing in eBay's auction listings from time to time, but they are less common than they used to be. Above I mentioned that in virtually all instances you won't find Valentino handbags sold via legitimate bags retailers.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
