Okie Dokie Donuts

Open for Business!

Foreword Review — Spring 2012

When a machine replaces an inefficient but beloved employee at a donut shop in this spirited and delightful graphic novel, proprietor Big Mama wishes she’d never complained in the first place. “How did you get that giant box in my kitchen?” she asks the smarmy salesman. “It’s a comic book, don’t worry about it!” he assures her. The convoluted instruction manual she consults when the chaos rains down will assuredly inspire déjà vu in all modern families. Goofy, witty, and tons of fun. All ages.
