It’s a Kirkus ⭐️ for A TRUE WONDER

Kirkus says A TRUE WONDER is a star.

Big news! Kirkus Reviews gave A TRUE WONDER a ⭐️.

Now, if you’re not in publishing (like my kids) one star might not seem like much.

But book reviews aren’t like Yelp or Amazon ratings. With Kirkus, you get either a starred review or just a plain old review with no star at all. So, I’ll take the star!

If you have a subscription to Kirkus, you can read the full review here.

As a reminder, you can preorder A TRUE WONDER wherever books are sold. If you order through Once Upon A Time Bookstore in Montrose, you’ll get a signed book plus free art postcard from Katy Wu.

And, if you’d like a chance to be entered to win the A TRUE WONDER tee shirt, sign up for my newsletter and let me know you’ve preordered the book from any store.

A TRUE WONDER: My next book in 30 seconds

Introducing A TRUE WONDER, illus. Katy Wu

I recently had to make a uber-short book talk about A TRUE WONDER: The Comic Book Hero Who Changed Everything, illus. Katy Wu (HMH/Clarion, Sept. 28, 2021).

Watch the video to find out what what the book is all about in 30 seconds flat. If you know me, you know this was a difficult exercise! I’m a talker when it comes to books.

Cover Reveal: A TRUE WONDER: The Comic Book Hero Who Changed Everything

I’m thrilled to share the cover for A TRUE WONDER: The Comic Book Hero Who Changed Everything, illustrated by Katy Wu. The book releases 9/28/21 from HMH/Clarion. You can preorder now wherever books are sold or mark it “to read” on Goodreads, and you’ll receive an email when it’s out. I’m so excited about this behind-the-scenes look at the creation and evolution of Wonder Woman, the iconic character who has inspired generations of girls and women as a symbol of female strength and power. For ages four and up.
