Step right up, graphic novel lovers: There’s a new series in town!—Or there will be soon, anyway. This quirky story comes straight from the pen of the zany and prolific author, Stephen W. Martin, who has teamed up with his illustration dynamo friend, Linh Pham. 

Gotta know more? I KNOW! Here’s the full details, for your delighted anticipation:

Sarah Alpert at Algonquin Young Readers has preempted World rights to a middle-grade graphic novel collaboration written by Stephen W. Martin and illustrated by Linh Pham: NANCY SPECTOR, MONSTER DETECTIVE, about a young detective who takes on the case of an Invisible Man looking for his missing dog—who also happens to be invisible. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the two-book deal, and the first book is scheduled for publication in 2022.

Both Stephen and Linh are hard at work creating this fantastic series – so stay tuned and keep your bookshelf dusted and ready. You won’t want to miss it!!

Congratulations, Stephen and Linh!
