And The Lost Lagoon

by Hurtt, BrianKindt, Matt

The first in a middle-grade adventure series by New York Times bestselling author/illustrators Matt Kindt and Brian Hurtt.

At just ten years old, Poppy Pepperton is a world-class adventurer. And maybe the youngest ever. She goes on adventures with her sidekick Colt Winchester (well, he thinks he’s her legal guardian) and uses her typographic memory—she can remember everything that she reads— to solve ancient mysteries and puzzles so dastardly that they would make a cryptologist cry.

When Poppy is summoned by Ramses MV, a reincarnated Egyptian king now cursed to re- main in his lavish Manhattan penthouse (long story), she knows to expect something strange. Ramses doesn’t disappoint! He shows her Mummy Mouth, a shrunken mummy head that speaks a riddle once a year. Mummy Mouth gives her a clue that sends Poppy, Colt, and Ram- ses’ cat Krums to Old Macadamia to investigate the Lost Lagoon and an ancient civilization that lived on the back of a “gigantipus” (a giant oc- topus). Along the way she will find mysteries, adventures, friends, and family in the unlikeli- est of ways. But a sinister robot is dogging their steps—is it programmed to help them or to stop them from learning an ancient secret?

Matt Kindt is the Harvey Award winning writer and artist of the comics and graphic novels MIND MGMT, Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Revolver, 3 Story, Super Spy, 2 Sisters, and Pis- tolwhip. He has been nominated for four Eisner and three Harvey Awards (and won once). His work has been published in France, Spain, Italy, and Germany.

Brian Hurtt burst onto the comic scene with the second arc in Greg Rucka’s critically ac- claimed series by Queen & Country. He’s lent his illustration skills to Declassified, Skinwalker, DC’s critically acclaimed Gotham Central, as well as the DC series Hard Time. In 2006 he launched a new creator-owned series with writer Cullen Bunn, titled The Damned.
