Ages 3 to 6
An awful creature with a terrible howl is loose in Mika’s house, eating up dust bunnies and even Mika’s socks! Join Mika on a charming journey of imagination and discovery in Polish award-winning creators Agata Loth-Ignaciuk and Berenika Kolomycka’s Mika and the Howler.
Meet Mika! Mika is a young explorer who faces familiar-yet-not-fully known objects and obstacles around her house. Today’s newest challenge? The "howler" that roams her living room and hallways sucking up dust bunnies and even her socks! But the howler isn’t as dangerous as it appears, and young Mika is soon brave enough to face it. The first in the series of books for the youngest comics readers, enjoy the sweet, simple, and delightful Mika and the Howler.
