Spin-off series from Fran Manushkin's popular Katie Woo series. Readers will relate to Pedro's interests, experiences and happy-go-lucky personality. Three-chapter structure builds confidence, as beginning readers are excited to be reading a chapter book.
Tammie Lyon, the illustrator of the Katie Woo and Pedro series says that these characters are two of her favorites. Tammie has illustrated numerous books for children, creating work for Disney, Scholastic, Simon and Schuster, Penguin, HarperCollins and Amazon Publishing to name a few. She has turned to writing and illustrating her own titles as well. Her first Picture Book Olive and Snowflake was released to starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal. Tammie lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband Lee and two dogs, Amos and Artie. She spends her days writing and drawing in her home studio in the woods surrounded by wildlife and of course, two mostly always sleeping dogs. Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including How Mama Brought the Spring; Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; and The Tushy Book. There is a real Katie Woo - she's Fran's great-niece - but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved MacBook in New York City.
Pedro watches a cartoon that sparks his dream of becoming a ninja. From the author of the Katie Woo series. * Greensboro News & Record *
