PLA 2020 will provide outstanding educational experiences for everyone and raise awareness through new and innovative learning opportunities.

NBM will be represented at the show by Publisher’s Spotlight (Booth #100), who will have several of our recent titles on display including Who Killed Kenny?, Tamba: Child Soldier, The Forbidden Harbor, Zombillenium V. 4: Royal Witchcraft, and Bob Marley in Comics.

A Home For Mr. Easter
By Brooklyn Allen

By the co-creator of The Lumberjanes! You will love this crazy energetic book by a refreshing new talent!

Tesana has never really fit into anything before but her daydreams. But when making an attempt to connect to her peers by joining in a pep rally planning committee she suddenly discovers a little white rabbit that lays brightly colored eggs. Realizing that she may have found the real life Easter bunny, Tesana embarks on an epic quest in an effort to get him back to his natural habitat and into safe hands. However as she progresses on her fanciful journey she gains more and more undesired attention until the quest becomes an increasingly madcap race to stay ahead of greedy pursuers and find a safe place for her new friend…wherever that place may be. It’s Tesana against the world!
