Coming Soon: JOEL-BROCK THE BRAVE and the VALOROUS SMALLS by Michael Bishop

Joel-Brock the Brave and the Valorous Smalls by Michael Bishop is available for preorder at Fairwood Press. Check out the book, and the wonderful art by Orion Zangara.

About the book:

Joel-Brock Lollis’s family has vanished into the labyrinthine Sporangium below a curious Georgia emporium, Big Box Bonanzas. Glimpses of an older J-B Lollis of the Atlanta Braves on a BBB television suggest that Joel-Brock may never get back his parents and sister. The Valorous Smalls—almost-ten Joel-Brock, lively teen Addi, and tiny detective Valona—forge their way into the mushroom realm to change that possible future.
