We have not one, but three new books illustrated by our oh-so-talented and all-around-lovely alumna Julia Denos! Julia's previous work includes the early reader biography Sojourner Truth: Path to Glory by Peter Merchant, the early chapter book series Sleepover Squad by PJ Denton, and the picture book My Little Girl by country singer Tim McGraw.
Her newest books are:
- 100 Days and 99 Nights by Alan Madison, an early chapter book about Esme's long wait for her father to return from his tour of duty.
- Cornelia and the Great Snake Escape by Pam Munoz Ryan, an early reader in which Cornelia tries to convince her mother that her new snake Corny is a great pet -- not an easy task when he escapes from his cage!
- Cornelia and the Show-and-Tell Showdown, the second Cornelia book, in which taking Corny to school for show and tell is a more daunting adventure than Cornelia expected, especially with bully Jason pestering her pet.
All three feature Julia's distinctive, endearing pencil and watercolor illustrations. Her kids are so real and expressive you'll want to hug them! See them in the new paperback display downstairs, and then stop by Julia's blog to tell her how much you like them. :)
