Become immersed in Molly Mendoza's dazzling worlds filled with unique and endearing characters in this epic and profound tale of growth, companionship and compassion. When Bloom is thrown from their world and Gloopy is exiled from their home, each finds in the other a much-needed kindred spirit. But as they skip through dimensions among great weeping giants, enormous alligator islands and topsy-turvy 2D worlds, they find that their greatest challenges are in facing their own truths and fears which they have both been anxious to avoid.

Skip is a flurry of bold and vivid cartooning that pulls you through this tender story of friendship at heart-wrenching speeds. Molly layers every page with such a dense whimsicality that it left me wanting to go back and re-read so I could sink my eyes into the details again and again. --Sloane Leong, creator of Prism Stalker Skip isn't a travelogue -- it's a trip. The point isn't to vicariously explore imaginary worlds, but simply to let your eye float along the stream of fantastical visions Mendoza spins out... A creation this idiosyncratic deserves to find a niche -- or, perhaps, to make one. --Etelka Lehoczky, NPR From the first spread to the last image, Mendoza's gorgeous, surrealist artwork presents imaginative depths both refreshing and disorienting. Poignant catharsis surfaces through tearful declarations and emotional strife as Bloom and Gloopy reflect on their strengths and weaknesses amid unusual environments... An exceptional road taken. --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW Mendoza's story is as fun as it is insightful, and filled with bizarre puzzlements for the characters, and something about it had me thinking about The Phantom Tollbooth. But Skip is also amiable and gentle in a way that hearkens to the Moomins, and visual tone is as reminiscent of that Tove Jansson's lovely work as the elements the narrative and characters. Mendoza's artwork is a total revelation. --The Beat
