Cucumber Quest: The Doughnut Kingdom (Paperback)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 1 in the Cucumber Quest series.
Originally a webcomic, the Cumber Quest series is stuffed full of humor, charm, and wonderful art – making it my favorite graphic novel series! What appears at first to be a standard fantasy adventure quickly turns into a colorful and light-hearted parody of classic video game and fantasy tropes. An easy and entertaining read that has a little something for everyone, Cucumber Quest is one of the most memorable tales I’ve ever read!— Christopher
What happens when an evil queen gets her hands on an ancient force of destruction?
World domination, obviously.
The seven kingdoms of Dreamside need a legendary hero. Instead, they'll have to settle for Cucumber, a nerdy magician who just wants to go to school. As destiny would have it, he and his way more heroic sister, Almond, must now seek the Dream Sword, the only weapon powerful enough to defeat Queen Cordelias Nightmare Knight.
Can these bunny siblings really save the world in its darkest hour?
Sure, why not?
Adapted from Gigi D.G.'s popular webcomic series, Cucumber Quest, The Doughnut Kingdom is the first graphic novel of a clever, adorable, and hilarious four-volume heroic adventure that is sure to make you hungry for sweets and action.

"[D.G's ]populated the world of Dreamside with characters who can be heart-warming and infuriating, but who are always fun to watch. Plus theres the art, which features some of the finest color work Ive seen in webcomics." i09
"D.G.'s candy-colored charmer is imbued with a delightfully snarky humor, helping to offset the profusion of cuteness....The worldbuilding is cleverly conveyed in bright and dynamic illustrations." Kirkus Reviews
"A blend of humor and adventure headed by some wackadoo characterswhats not to like?" The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
