Sunnyville Stories is an independent comics series of the slice-of-life genre. Sunnyville is a small, remote village surrounded by vast wilderness. Inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, they go about their daily business dressed in traditional clothing; males wear suits and farm clothes while females wear skirts and dresses.

In this inaugural volume, a wisecracking city boy moves to Sunnyville with his family. This young silver tabby cat, Robert "Rusty" Duncan, quickly meets a local country girl, a buttercream cat named Samantha "Sam" Macgregor. Together, they have all kinds of adventures in Sunnyville from meeting the other townspeople, playing in a private video arcade, and even facing local bandits.

"This book is best for...readers who are looking for a graphic novel with clean artwork and an idyllic story line." --Library Journal Xpress Reviews, Dec. 2012

"Sunnyville Stories Volume 1" is an anthology of the first three episodes or installments of the independent alternative comic series, "Sunnyville Stories." In the world of Sunnyville, black and white cartoon teenage cat friends, Rusty and Samantha encounter unusually familiar issues (from human society), enacted by old-fashioned, retro-dressed anthropomorphic animals, coons, bears, squirrels, and other oddly human-looking cats. Rusty and Samantha tackle issues of loneliness, moving traumas, games and peer pressure, cheating, stealing, and the ups and downs of friendships, adolescent, animal, human, or other. "Sunnyville Stories" has some of the taste of Walt Kelly's Pogo and the inhabitants of the Okefenokee, an old popular comic series from the early 50's. Daily truths about human interactions are somehow more palatable when expressed by oddly dressed, humanoid- looking animals. It's kind of a safe experiment using a different mirror to look at ourselves. "Sunnyville Stories" is destined to become a mainstream hit, but will probably never lose its alternative style and bite. The ultimate message appears to be somewhat hopeful and optimistic, although with strange undercurrents. --Midwest Book Review Bookwatch, June 2013
