The new Wings of Fire graphic novel, The Hidden Kingdom, is out on our shelves today - and we couldn't be more excited, as we get ready to welcome Wings of Fire author Tui T. Sutherland in just another week, for a free event on Wednesday, October 23rd at 7 pm! Tui T. Sutherland will come to Bookshop Santa Cruz on October 23rd at 7 pm for a free kids event celebrating her bestselling middle grade series, Wings of Fire. The phenomenally popular series grew with two new installments this summer, with Book 13: The Poison Jungle and the graphic novel adaptation of Book 3: The Hidden Kingdom. Tui T. Sutherland’s Wings of Fire fantasy series, about five dragonets (young dragons) destined to end an ancient war between the seven dragon tribes of Pyrrhia, has been on the rise ever since the first book, The Dragonet Prophecy, was hatched in July 2012. By book four, The Dark Secret, the series hit national bestseller lists, and the series as a whole has millions of copies in print in the U.S. Ask your kids - you won't want to miss this. #wingsoffire#newreleasetuesday#thehiddenkingdom#kidsbooks#newkidsbooks#kidsgraphicnovels#tuitsutherland#kidsevent#dragons#dragonets#wingsoffireevent#bookshopkids#childrensbooks#middlegrade#santacruzkids#scholastic#santacruzlife

I’m so excited to tell you all about this project I’ve had the absolute pleasure to work on! Through an app called Novel Effect, you can bring kids books to life! By opening the app and selecting your chosen book, music and sound effects play as you read the story aloud. I had the fantastic opportunity to voice the Cyclops Witch in the story The Cyclops Witch and the Heebie-Jeebies. She’s crazy and fun and an excellent way to freak out next door neighbors. If you have kids or just want to have cute story time, please get your hands on this book and open the story in the app! #voiceover#kidsbooks#noveleffectapp#canidothisforever

It’s a beautiful story with magical illustrations (by @vashtiharrison) - a must have for your shelves! #findyourlight ✨ And how perfect that Sulwe is rocking a similar headband and baby blue dress that author @lupitanyongo wore when she won her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2014! 🤩 💫 From @simonkids... #sulwe has skin the color of midnight. She is darker than everyone in her family. She is darker than anyone in her school. Sulwe just wants to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister. Then a magical journey in the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything. 💫 In this stunning debut picture book, actress Lupita Nyong’o creates a whimsical and heartwarming story to inspire children to see their own unique beauty. #brightnessisjustwhoyouare
