INVISIBLE EMMIE is part of Shelf Stuff‘s summer reading challenge. This week, any interested kids can take a quiz to test their knowledge of the book, and then enter to win a prize pack! Details here!
Lately, I’ve received numerous requests from teachers asking for short videos of encouragement on final school assignments that utilize comics and graphic novels.
For any educators who’d like a little word of encouragement and sendoff for their students doing these types of projects, I made a short video. Feel free to use it at will.
Also, THANK YOU to educators who have tried their hardest under these tough circumstances to boost their students’ mood and make learning fun online. I know it hasn’t been easy, and you are so appreciated!

BECOMING BRIANNA hits the (virtual) shelves TODAY!
Becoming Brianna is the fourth book in the best-selling Emmie & Friends series. The story brings Brianna from Positively Izzy back into the limelight, in a way she never thought possible. She must overcome all kinds of frustrating challenges, all the while trying to answer the biggest question of all: What do I believe?
This book is perfect for anyone who loves humor, heart, and of course, funny drawings to highlight all of it! Ages 8-12.

Thrilled to announce that JUST JAIME was chosen for the 2020 ILA-CBC Children’s Choices list! This is a cooperative project of the International Literacy Association (ILA) and the Children’s Book Council (CBC).

Each year, children from Kindergarten – 6th grade in five regions of the United States read newly-published children’s trade books and vote for the ones they like best. These Children’s Choices, selected from hundreds of titles, can be counted on as books children really enjoy reading.”
