About the Author
Chad Sell's first children's graphic novel was The Cardboard Kingdom, which he illustrated and co-wrote with a team of ten collaborators. Doodleville is his first full-length solo project, and it is set in Chicago, where he lives with his husband and two cats. Much of the story takes place in Chad's neighborhood of Lincoln Square and at one of his favorite places in the world: the Art Institute of Chicago.
"A masterpiece." --Lincoln Peirce, New York Times-bestselling author of the Big Nate series

"A tender yet action-packed tale of a young girl who uses her creativity as an outlet for her emotions.... Lovers of graphic novels, and anyone struggling with friendship will appreciate Sell's newest tale." -School Library Journal

"[Sell] tells an engaging story that uses a fantastical idea to ponder real-world dilemmas How do you cope when things feel out of control? How do you reduce harm, and how do you make amends for harm that you've caused?" --Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will definitely respond to the idea of large emotions that are hard to control, as well as the therapeutic joy of art--likewise Sell's use of encroaching darkness and his luminous figures, warmly rounded but imbued with wonderfully emotive features." --Booklist

"Sell's caricatured illustrations provide strong action, and... highlight emotionally charged moments." --Publishers Weekly
