Publisher Comments:

"To call Happy Punks 1 2 3 'adorable' would be an understatement. It tells us 'Welcome to Planet Earth!' and 'Here's some cool stuff you could do in life!'"—Teresa Taylor, B*tthole Surfers

Welcome to New Flip City, a Busytown for a new era and home of the Happy Punks, twelve colorful, fun-loving, and creatively exciting friends. Come along as the Happy Punks get ready for their big show and are joined by their friends, a collection of animals, robots, zombies, snowmen, cavemen, and more who make life in New Flip City fun—and who all love to dance at the end of the day! In Happy Punks 1 2 3 we meet each of the punks as they go through their day, explore New Flip City, meet up with their friends, and have a big party with music and dancing. We also learn to count to twelve!

Review:

"The team behind A Rule Is to Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy returns with a counting book that takes readers up to 12 as musicians prepare to give a free concert. These punks aren't exactly raging against the machine; rather, Seven and Christy focus on things that bring them joy: 'Six happy punks go to the thrift store.... They love old stuff. Perry buys a funny jacket. Siobhan loves that strange gizmo.' The book doesn't get specific about what punk means, but the diversity of characters (including a second-wave ska fan, anthropomorphic animals and robots, and a jetpack-wearing punk of the steam variety) hint at a be-yourself, anything-goes mentality. Ages 3 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Happy Punks 1 2 3 is what happens when Richard Scarry collides with Joey Ramone
