Eleanor isn't having an easy time of it lately. The new baby brother seems to constantly be taking more and more of mom and dad's time, taking away from her play time and her story time.

But Eleanor has a bigger problem,and she doesn't even know it. A dark and evil force has set his sights on her, and she's going to need a special defender, an experienced knight, to fight on her behalf to keep her safe.

Enter Muffins: Muffins is a T.E.D.D.Y. -- a Terrifically Effective Dreaming Defender. Yeah! Unfortunately, Muffins is not a fully-trained T.E.D.D.Y. but rather an over-eager rookie, who overheard there was a threat when he eavesdropped on his teacher speaking with the Dream King in Dreamland. Ready to prove he's got the stuffing of the greatest T.E.D.D.Y. ever, Muffins takes a shooting star to Earth and lands in Eleanor's bedroom.

Eleanor has a big and bright imagination, and it's that which attracts the dark one's attention. He wants to bring back fear and darkness into children's lives, and he has an army of bedbugs, boogeymen and M.I.C.s (Monsters in Closet) ready to do his bidding.

Created by Justin Dutton, with interiors by Laura Rimazombati and lettered by Eric Weathers, UNSTITCHED reads like the first chapter of a graphic novel the likes of which you'd expect from Scholastic -- comparable to Greg Grunberg's DREAM JUMPER and Ben Hatke's MIGHTY JACK in theme and tone. It's a high energy story, brilliantly illustrated -- a perfect comic for all ages.
