Treasure in the Booth

The word “buzz” is used frequently at BEA; you hear it almost as often as “e-book.” But there is BUZZ, and then there is lowercase buzz. I discovered the latter type browsing in the smaller booths and reading treasures like My Name is Elizabeth! by debut author and illustrator Annika Dunklee and Matthew Forsythe.

As you can see from her unwavering gaze, Elizabeth knows what she wants, and it is NOT a nickname. Don’t call her Betsy or Lizzy or Liz. It’s Elizabeth, thank you very much!

Published by Kids Can Press in September and starred by Kirkus, this gem is already shining.
