Join in the fun in this lively, clever debut graphic novel sure to appeal to fans of the Last Kids on Earth and Lumberjanes series.
Who are the authors?
FRANCESCO SEDITA likes to make lots of things. Other things (besides THE PATHFINDERS SOCIETY) he has created are the Miss Popularity books series, the Emmy Award-winning Who Was? Show on Netflix (which he made with his co-author Prescott Seraydarian), as well as lots of other books in his job at Penguin Young Readers, like Mad Libs, WhoHQ bestsellers, and other books with amazing authors like Henry Winkler, Lin Oliver, Giada De Laurentiis, and even Dolly Parton.
When he isn’t making stuff, Francesco is cooking in his apartment in New York City or binge-watching a series with his husband or playing with their cute cat, Alfredo.
PRESCOTT SERAYDARIAN loves stories, always has. When he was a kid, he wrote stories about himself (and his entire neighborhood!) in endless enchanted adventures. That led to telling stories as a grown-up with amazing partners like Disney, Penguin, NBC, and Netflix through his award-winning film company Lunch Productions.
Now he has the best job of all as a film teacher at George School, a Quaker boarding school in Newton, Pennsylvania. Every day he gets to teach students (just a little older than the Pathfinders!) skills to share their own stories. Prescott lives at his school with his lovely wife, dynamic daughters, and endearing dog named Asher.
