Publishers Weekly reports:

Peter Phillips and Tara Walker at Tundra have acquired, in an exclusive submission, world rights to Pluto Rocket by Paul Gilligan (King of the Mole People). This launch of a new early graphic novel series follows Joe Pidge, a boastful city pigeon who thinks he knows it all, and Pluto, a pink creature who arrives from outer space and needs help fitting in. Publication of the first two books is scheduled for spring and fall of 2023, respectively; Stephen Barr at Writers House represented the author.
