Description


Grand adventures stories often begin where you least expect them…

Iris knows this because she’s read them all. However, as a thirteen-year-old stuck in the tiny town of Bugden, real adventure seems like a distant dream. But when Iris and her best friend, Sam, stumble upon an unusually dry river on the outskirts of town, they’re led to a discovery beyond anything Iris has ever read about: a hidden city and a forgotten tale of friendship.

In Jason Pamment's middle grade graphic novel debut, perfect for fans of Hilda and This Was Our Pact, can Iris and Sam uncover the truth in time to keep their own friendship afloat, or will history repeat itself and pull them apart forever?

Praise For…


This story is astonishing enough to leave people speechless.
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A strong story about friendship that incorporates fantasy and whimsy; fans of “Hilda” and Adventure Time will be charmed. A great addition to any middle school library collection.
— School Library Journal

In this graphic novel debut, Australian animator Pamment showcases a sharp eye for architecture, natural settings, and dynamic compositions, allowing rectangular panels to expand, contract, and break form, crashing down or shattering into shards, in this fine-tuned puzzle. 
Publishers Weekly

Pamment’s art is intricate and generous, and he proves as sensitive to young readers’ urge for adventure and mystery as he does to the stakes of their friendships and emotional lives.
