Mighty Alice Goes Round and Round

A Cul de Sac Book

Cul de Sac chronicles the absurdly wonderful adventures of the Otterloop family. Alice, Petey, Mom, and Dad live in the cookie-cutter suburbs not far from the interstate. Here, and at school, their day-to-day life unfolds with simple joys, tiny infractions, and wonderful moments of gentle bliss.

In this specially curated collection for kids, the quirky world of Cul de Sac comes to life for a new audience.
