Are you ready for an adventure? With beautiful illustrations, imaginative journeys, and timeless lessons, a great children’s book captures the hearts and minds of all generations. This free School Library Journal Books for Kids webinar will provide you with vast variety of what’s happening in children’s books today.
We are very excited that author Charles Gilman will be joining the webinar. Gilman has written four middle-grade novels in the Tales from Lovecraft Middle School series: Professor Gargoyle, The Slither Sisters, Teacher’s Pest, and the forthcoming Substitute Creature. The series has been heralded as “fast, fun, and adequately disgusting” by Kirkus Reviews. Charles Gilman’s true identity is Jason Rekulak, Creative Director and inventor of the “literary monster mash-up” at Quirk Books, bestselling imprint of bestselling titles such as; Pride and Prejudice and Zombies , Android Karenina, and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
