On the grand sweep of the Pigdom Plains lives a small pig called Lily, the daughter of renowned inventor, Hercules Fatchops. Hercules' personal holy grail is to invent powered aircraft, a feat already achieved in secret by Lily. Hercules prizes only science, but Lily's innovations employ science and magic. She will need both, because now the Pigdom faces invasion from terrifying adversaries with more advanced aircraft - from over the mountains come the warthogs, intent on destroying the Pigdom.

Review quote

"Abadzis (Laika) packs his story with porcine wordplay....but it's the rapid pacing, intense action sequences, and wealth of skilled female characters that will stick with readers." --Publishers Weekly

" This graphic novel is a visual feast, with vivid world-building details drawn into the vibrant illustrations...and effective use of panel formatting to speed or slow pace according to dramatic needs." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Detailed artwork, vivid colors, and soaring action sequences breathe life into each moment of this hefty narrative. " --School Library Journal

"Follows in the trotters of fantasy comics past, which means it also acts as a nice primer for middle graders just starting out in the genre." --Kirkus

"Filled with aerial action, adventure, and magic." --GeekDad

Praise For Laika

"A luminous masterpiece filled with pathos and poignancy." --Kirkus, starred review

"Vividly inked panels of Abadzis's art tell an impressively complex tale." --Publishers Weekly
