THE ADVENTURES OF LIVERWURST GIRL
Bullies are taking over Gorgonzola Hill,
and only Louisa May Kelly can stop them.
Transformed by her favorite liverwurst sandwiches, and unstopped by her boisterous clumsiness, she becomes the superhero Liverwurst Girl -- sworn protector of bullied kids.
Sausage and Self-esteem! Brats and Brawn! Chorizo and Chutzpah!
(Okay, so her tagline stinks, but she’s working on it.)
