This is book number 2 in the Dolphin Girl series.
Attention fans of Lunch Lady and Steven Universe! Middle grade graphic novel superhero-in-training Dolphin Girl is back fending off cold cut storms and learning to deal with a new (super-annoying) rival in the second book in this side-splitting series.
Ever since the evil Sea Cow tried to steal Dolphin Girl and Captain Dugong’s restaurant/hideout in Trouble in Pizza Paradise!, business has been bad. Dolphin Girl attempts to rebrand the restaurant, but everyone who works there hates the new outfits and the new music. Even worse, there’s a new superhero in town—everyone loves, Wonder Friend and they seemingly can do no wrong. On the other hand, Dolphin Girl is getting everything wrong.
But when Sea Cow returns to cover Midwestern Deerburbia in a blizzard of baloney, Dolphin Girl and Otter Boy have no choice but to team up with the all-too-wonderful Wonder Friend to prevent their town from becoming a big Jimmy John’s sandwich!
With bold, bright, energetic illustration Into the Baloney Storm serves up a graphic novel that fans of Steven Universe will be eager to sink their teeth into.

"The second volume in former pizza-delivery-guy Smith’s madcap series is just as hilariously absurd and frenetic as the first, expanding on the zany world with new backstory and characters—and even some gender inclusivity. The artwork’s comic intensity, reminiscent of classic cartoons like The Ren & Stimpy Show or Spongebob Squarepants, is undeniably captivating, and a remarkably high punchline-to-panel ratio, along with a meaty page count, means this will leave new and returning fans well fed."—Booklist
"Madcap absurdity drives several jokes per page that will feel like home to young ‘Bob’s Burgers’ fans. Starting at the beginning is in order."—School Library Journal
