The Glorkian Warrior, a three-eyed alien with a talking backpack, is on a mission: Deliver a peanut-butter-and-clam pizza to someone in need. Who would order a pie with such weird toppings? That's just one of many mysteries in the glorkian warrior delivers a pizza, the new graphic novel by James Kochalka, Vermont's first-ever cartoon laureate. "Stuffed with playful fun and awesome sound effects, this feisty intergalactic journey delivers a good-natured sucker punch of glee," writes Booklist. Plus, it's filled with gross-out humor, which kids love. Don't want the adventure to end? Download the game, Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork, at the iTunes App Store. Kochalka himself voiced the fearsome Magic Robot.

The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza: The 112-page graphic novel is appropriate for ages 5-10. Published by First Second Books. Available at Phoenix Books in Burlington.
