About the Book

A Western-inspired graphic novel for young readers who love crime-fighting, gutsy girls, and of course, dinosaurs!

For fans of Hilda and the Troll series and Witches of Brooklyn!

In the town of Little Spittle, dinosaurs and cowgirls live in harmony. Abigail, who has always dreamed of becoming a detective, lives on the outskirts of town with her pet dinosaur Rootbeer. Meanwhile Clementine, daughter of the sheriff, was born into the life of fighting crime.

But when the Bandit Queen gets a hold of some dark magic, the town and the sheriff are nowhere to be found. It’s up to Clem, Abigail, and Rootbeer to team up, defeat the Bandit Queen, and save their beloved town from bandits, dinomagik, and undercover attacks.

In a hilarious tale of two unlikely friends, Clem and Abigail show us how to be our authentic selves while simultaneously kicking some butt.

Author Bio

Lucie Ebrey is a queer cartoonist and illustrator from Birmingham, UK. She's been drawing comics since she was 7 years old and has had numerous published stories over the years. When not working on comics, she's thinking about working on comics. Why, as you're reading this, she's probably doodling something in her sketchbook. When Lucie isn’t at the drawing table she can be found watching horror movies or playing video games under a big blanket.
