Recorded live on the PopTop Stage at the American Library Association's annual conference, three Newbery Honorees and powerful female voices in the children's literature share the stories behind their successful and upcoming middle grade novels. Cece Bell introduces readers to SMELL MY FOOT!, the first book in her CHICK AND BRAIN series featuring a small cast of characters whose ensuing and hilarious mishaps are the result of miscommunication and misunderstanding. Kate DiCamillo shares BEVERLY, RIGHT HERE, a companion novel to RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE and LOUISIANA'S WAY HOME. In this new novel Beverly Tapinski runs away from home, but this time for good, in hopes of finding herself and a place to belong. Shannon Hale brings the newest installment of THE PRINCESS IN BLACK, a series cowritten with Dean Hale and illustrated by LeUyen Pham. The PRINCESS IN BLACK books host a diverse cast of multidimensional characters, including monsters seen beyond the binary of good or bad.
