Boo-hoo! Mimi is not having a good day. She can't get her pigtails to sit right, she's not in the mood for her favorite breakfast, and she's far from feeling like her usual self. Mimi has a case of the Blahs, where nothing feels quite right. With the help of Penelope, her magical toy dog and best friend, she sets out to find a way to get rid of this icky feeling. Will Mimi reclaim her spark, or will the Blahs get the best of her?

With a love for all things pink and magical, Shauna J. Grant is a cartoonist who creates cuteness! Shauna is on a mission to add diversity to the comics community by creating stories that feature Black girls as the heroines of their own adventures, and her work has appeared in Black Comix Returns, Noisemakers, and The Secret Loves of Geeks. She enjoys spending her downtime daydreaming, reading Korean comics, and playing with her own magical dog, Sugarpaws. Shauna casts cuteness into the world via her comics from her home in New York City, the place she was born and raised.

★ "This adorable graphic chapter book is an easy-to-follow tale that tackles relatable emotions. The pastel, manga-influenced artwork, especially the imagination sequences and the lumpy blue Blah blob, keeps the narrative tone light even when Mimi feels incredibly blah... The opposite of blah! New series readers as well as fans of the first Mimi volume will definitely be happy with this adorable graphic novel." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"The playful, bubbly artwork in pastel colors works in perfect unison with the kid-friendly story, which features lots of imaginative play and adorable creatures." -- Booklist

Praise for Mimi and the Cutie Catastrophe:

★ "Mimi is absolutely as cute as the title describes. Grant's illustrations are frothy and perfectly pastel, and her manga-inspired facial expressions communicate as much as her text... Silly, sweet, and peppily paced, Mimi is great for early readers or as a read-aloud." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"This adorable graphic novel by Shauna J. Grant is perfect for any little cutie... [Mimi's] newfound self-confidence might be the cutest thing of all." -- Entertainment Weekly
