Here’s the full synopsis of the book below:
“Written and illustrated by Kirk Scroggs, The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid is the latest middle grade graphic novel from DC. This action-packed adventure geared toward readers ages 8-12 follows middle schooler Russell Wainwright, an excessive notebook doodler, and his best friends Charlotte and Preston through the highs and lows of middle school. Russell’s notebook details in both hilarious text and green-tinted illustrations (complete with ketchup stains!), what it’s like to be different, to be comfortable in his own skin (no matter how slimy), to discover his true talents, to avoid the intense stare of Mr. Finneca (his suspicious science teacher), and to find humor in the everyday weird.”
Kirk Scroggs is an author-illustrator best known for the Snoop Troop books, It Came From Beneath the Playground, and Attack of the Ninja Potato Clones, as well as the series Tales of a Sixth-Grade Muppet and Wiley & Grampa’s Creature Features.
