Fry Guys

In this colorful graphic novel, the Fry Guys—a team of three French fries—must do whatever it takes to defend their home against an invasion of evil UFO-nion Rings. ZZZAT! Ketchup blast. Ah, good grease.

Waffle has always dreamed about adventure outside her small town of Spudtown, Idaho. But as it turns out, adventure was dreaming of her, too. One day, Waffle’s hometown is invaded by evil UFO-nion Rings. They're big. They're greasy. And they're ready to take all the fries back to their lair. It’s up to Waffle and her best buddies, Curly and Sweets, to put an end to the UFO-nion Rings’ rampage. That is . . . if they can!
This graphic novel is fun for everyone—unless you’re an evil UFO-nion Ring, of course. With hilarious text by #1 New York Times bestselling author Eric Geron and adorable art by Jannie Ho, it’s perfect for young graphic novel readers, English language learners, and potato enthusiasts of all kinds! The font used in the graphic novel is also Dyslexia-friendly.

"Spud-tacular … Using colors as emphatic as the frequent sound effects, Ho cranks up the temperature in simply drawn panels of fast-food action that, ultimately, hurtles headlong into a peaceable caramelization and general celebrations of both differences and three new 'home fry heroes.' Readers will demand extra helpings." – Kirkus 

“With zany illustrations, clever wordplay, and laugh-out-loud storytelling, this graphic novel is exactly the right kind of good-humored silliness for emerging readers who are just beginning to discover the fun of books.” - 
School Library Journal

The memorable potato characters and hilarious antics make this perfect for kids just getting into reading comics independently. Betcha can't read just one!" – Booklist
