From the creators of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Marshmellow Incident is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of hot cocoa.
In the towns of Left and Right, where "Right is right" (in Right, of course) and "Leftovers are proudly served" (in Left), a villager crosses the ancient yellow line dividing the two.
Such a thing cannot be tolerated, naturally. So it's up to the Knights of the Ambidextrous to instill order among the two. The problem is, keeping order has some fluffy results--especially since both Left and Right have armories jam-packed with... but that would be telling.
A fast and fun read, The Marshmallow Incident is an enjoyable treat for both the adult and kid, the left, right, or ambidextrous.
