Summer Reading No. 3: Solimar: The Sword of the Monarchs by Pam Muñoz Ryan. It’s published by Disney Hyperion and I definitely could see it as a Disney animated movie. A brave princess who is more comfortable in hiking boots than fancy attire, must save her kingdom while also complying with the terms of a magical pact to save the weaker of the migrating monarchs.
Summer Reading 23 no. 2: Odder
SSYRA title 2: Odder by Katherine Applegate. I have a feeling Ivan will always be my favorite Katherine Applegate book, but this was an interesting account of a twice rescued otter told in free verse poems.
Summer Reading 23 no. 1: Swim Team
I'm an aspiring author / illustrator.
