I had a blast reading SUPERBEETLE at my favorite children’s bookstore Once Upon a Storybook in Tustin. I think even the kids had fun! I showed them where Taiwan is on a map and shared a few cool beetle facts. Then we made our own Superbeetles and I got to sign the store’s author wall!
A fun way to spend a morning and I can’t wait to do it again!
Today is the launch of SUPERBEETLE! Woo hoo! It’s available in both print and e-book at Elm Books’ website as well as Amazon.
SUPERBEETLE features 8-year-old Hong who travels to Taiwan for the first time to visit her grandmother. She doesn’t like all the big scary bugs…and then she meets the biggest bug of all, Superbeetle! Find out how Superbeetle and Hong learn to help each other. SUPERBEETLE features multicultural families, dumplings, and of course, bugs!
I’m also doing a Goodreads giveaway so enter before the end of the month to win a free copy of SUPERBEETLE!
I’m really excited for my first children’s book and it’s also the official launch of Gen-E books, Elm Books’ children’s imprint. Woo hoo!
SUPERBEETLE features Hong, a Chinese-American eight-year-old girl who visits Taiwan for the first time. She’s excited to meet her grandmother…but there are two big problems: 1) There is a GIANT beetle in her grandmother’s bathtub. 2) Her grandmother’s market is on the brink of closing! Can she save her grandma’s market while staying away from this terrifying SUPERBEETLE?
HINT: Maybe the beetle isn’t so terrifying after all.
