The cover for the third and final installment of the Tristan Strong trilogy is here! The first two books won awards, landed on top 10 lists, and received one of our favorite endorsements of all time from Kwame Alexander: “Imagine if you combined Anansi the Spider, John Henry, and Marvel into, like, one book.” So we expect great things from Tristan Strong Keeps Punching.
And this art is exceeding our expectations, starting with giving Gum Baby her first cover appearance.
See below for a book description and mark your calendars for the on-sale date of 10/5/2021!
Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents the finale of Kwame Mbalia’s trilogy, in which Tristan Strong faces off with his archenemy, King Cotton, once and for all. After reuniting with Ayanna, who is now in his world, Tristan travels up the Mississippi in pursuit of his archenemy, King Cotton. Along the way they encounter new haints who are dead set on preventing their progress north to Tristan’s hometown of Chicago. It’s going to take many Alkean friends, including the gods themselves, the black flames of the afokena gloves, and all of Tristan’s inner strength to deliver justice once and for all. Shocking twists, glorious triumphs, and a cast of unforgettable characters make this series conclusion as satisfying as it is entertaining.
