Lucas Turnbloom writes in to tell me that Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist (and creator of the comic Grand Avenue) Steve Breen has just published his first children’s book entitled Stick.

From the Amazon description:

Stick is a frog who likes to do things on his own-with no help from Mom. But one day he gets carried away . . . literally. His tongue accidentally sticks to a dragonfly when he tries to catch a mosquito, and off he’s pulled across the swamp, through town, and into the big city of New Orleans, causing some very funny havoc along the way. When he finds himself stranded at the seashore, far from his mom, will he finally be ready to ask for help?

Author/illustrator Steve Breen is a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and the creator of the comic strip Grand Avenue. Stick, his picture-book debut, is rambunctious, silly, and couldn’t be more endearing.

The book hit shelves as of yesterday and retails for $16.99 but can be had at Amazon for $11.55.
