Official PR follows and a then a preview:
Red Panda & Moon Bear are the defenders of their community! Together, these brave siblings rescue lost cats, scold bullies, and solve mysteries, all before Mamá and Papá get home. But lately… the mysteries have been extra mysterious. All of their powers may not be enough to handle spooks, super-villains, alien invaders, and time warps! It’ll take all their imagination— and some new friends— to uncover the secret cause behind all these events before the whole world goes crazy.
In his first book for young readers, Cuban-American cartoonist Jarod Roselló presents a whimsical and tender-hearted adventure, packed with Saturday-morning adventure and glowing with Caribbean sunshine.
Hispanic/Latino kids make up about 25% of US schools and growing, yet almost no comics or graphic novels focus on their experience. We are thrilled to introduce Jarod Roselló’s exuberant young heroes to readers everywhere!
