Praise For Rutabaga the Adventure Chef: Book 1

"Colossal's full-color, cartoonish illustrations, with their heavy linework and simple figures, match the light, goofy tone of the stories."


"Colossal perfectly mixes action and humor...A promising first course in a series that could really take off."

— Peter Blenski, Greenfield Public Library, WI

"Rutabaga’s culinary feats in the comic...could easily inspire young adventure chefs to make some gourmet grub of their own."

— Sarah Hunter

"The graphic-novel format works well here, pairing vivid retro-toned illustrations with a mostly cheerful, bouncy narration...future chefs will be well pleased that there are a few real recipes at the end of the book."
