Officer Clawsome Lobster Cop by Brian Smith and Chris Giarrusso

“Full of deep-sea puns and underwater antics, Officer Clawsome had me lobster-rolling with laughter!”
― JOHN PATRICK GREEN, New York Times bestselling author of the InvestiGators series

Dog Man meets SpongeBob in Officer Clawsome: The Kelpcake Crisis!, a fast-paced and funny middle grade graphic novel series about the crimefighting duo Clawsome, a lobster, and his partner Stariana, a starfish, as they fight such denizens of the deep as the Catfishburglar, Chowderhead, and the Brain Sturgeon. Crime doesn’t pay in Caper Cove with Officer Clawsome and his partner, Stariana, on the case. Just ask the notorious Catburglarfish—she’ll confirm.

But when the beloved bakery Kelpy’s Kelpcakes goes missing and rumors begin swirling about shark sightings for the first time in a hundred years, the duo is about to find themselves claw-deep in a mystery for the ages. Will this dynamic duo save the day yet again, or have the citizens of Caper Cove eaten their last Kelpcake…for good?

Written by New York Times bestselling author Brian “Smitty” Smith (Pea, Bee, & Jay, Tree Mail, The Stuff of Legend) and illustrated by Chris Giarrusso (G-Man, Mini Marvels, Hashtag Danger).
