The Beetle and the Sanderling

I am currently looking for representation for this graphic novel!

For more details, please contact me at AkadoriStudios@gmail.com.

The Beetle and The Sanderling is a middle grade graphic novel about a young shorebird and an endangered beetle who must work together to fly to the beetleā€™s island. As the two creatures evade predators and deal with storms, they learn more about each other and the natural world around them.

The book is a buddy adventure with a side of science and dry humor, rendered in gentle watercolor. The story is inspired by my experience as an ecologist and by the American burying beetle conservation project on Block Island, Rhode Island.
