In Andi Watson’s new graphic novel, Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula, readers are introduced to a young princess who has too much on her plate. Between running the Underworld and catering to her hypochondriac father, who is too weak to get out of bed, Princess Decomposia barely has time to take care of herself. Throw in warring werewolves and other demanding monsters and Princess Decomposia has complete chaos on her hands. Now she is tasked with finding a new chef to satisfy her father’s picky palette and please ornery dignitaries. When Count Spatula, a vampire who has lost his fangs due to his sweet tooth, accepts the position he dreams of creating grand meals, but he begins to realize that the one person he wants to share his creations with is too overworked and underappreciated to notice. Will Count Spatula be able to shake things up in the Underworld and show Princess Decomposia what is right in front of her?
This sweet graphic novel was refreshing and I'm glad that I added to my YA collection. I hope that Watson decides to continue with Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula's story, because it is definitely not over.
