In this delicious companion novel to Garlic and the Vampire, the beloved first book from Bree Paulsen, Garlic sets off on another adventure that tests her mettle. A cozy, reassuring graphic novel about everyone’s favorite new heroine!

Bree Paulsen’s brave little protagonist, Garlic, is back in this charmingly illustrated follow-up to Garlic and the Vampire, serving up another tale of friendship, magic, and self-discovery. Give both books to readers who fell in love with Tidesong or Witch Boy!Garlic loves spending time with Witch Agnes, Carrot, and her new friend, the Count, who has proven to be a delightful neighbor to the village of vegetable people rather than a scary vampire. But despite Agnes’s best attempts to home-brew a vegetarian blood substitute for Count, the ingredient she needs most can only be found at the Magic Market, far from the valley. Before she knows it, with a broomstick in hand, Garlic is nervously preparing for a journey.But Garlic is experiencing another change too—finger by finger, she appears to be turning human. Witch Agnes assures her that this is normal for her garden magic, but Garlic isn’t so sure that she’s ready for such a big change. After all, changes are scary . . . and what if she doesn’t want to be human after all?

About the Author

Bree Paulsen is a native of Southern California. She graduated from the Laguna College of Art and Design with a BFA in Animation, and is the creator of the webcomic for adults Patrik the Vampire. Her first middle grade novel, Garlic and the Vampire, received a starred review from The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, which called it “folkloric . . . a down comforter of a graphic novel,” and another one from The Horn Book, which called it a “lighthearted approach to risk-taking, caretaking, and social-emotional growth."
