Cindy Seip

Andrea Beaty is the author of many children’s books, including the bestselling Questioneers series; Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies; Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau; and One Girl. Aaron Slater, Illustrator (Abrams Books for Young Readers), illustrated by David Roberts, tells the story of a kid who loves listening to stories and dreams of one day writing them himself. But when it comes to reading, the letters just look like squiggles to him. When his teacher asks the class to write a story, Aaron can’t get a single word down. He is sure his dream of being a storyteller is out of reach and it makes him sad – but then inspiration strikes, and Aaron finds a way to tell stories his own way.
