Bloomsbury Children’s buys Sheena Dempsey’s graphic novel series
Bloomsbury Children’s Books is expanding its graphic novel publishing with a series by Irish author and illustrator Sheena Dempsey.
Pablo and Splash is labelled as a “fantastically funny, full-colour middle-grade graphic novel about time-travelling penguins”. The first in the series will publish in January 2024, with book two to follow in November 2024 and book three in 2025. The first book features an adventure in the dinosaur era, with further time-travel exploits including set in the Ice Age and Ancient Rome in books two and three. Each title will include end-matter with historical facts and how-to-draw guides for budding graphic novelists.
