So, what is knowonder up to these days? A lot of knowonderful things!
Our first two young middle grade chapter books for kids ages 7-10 are oh-so-close to publication. THE ADVENTURES OF JAKE AND MOON GRANNY: SPACE PIRATE PANIC will be out later this month and BURKLEY AND THE BEASTS: THE SEA SERPENT will release in November. We are certain you’ll love them both! So get excited to read about a space adventure, a magic portal, pirates, bunnies, a rough’n’tough granny, a sea serpent and – of course – a couple of brave, spunky, quirky kids. These chapter books are chock full of everything you’ve grown to love about knowonder books PLUS MORE!
Another book we are “electrified” about is DR. FRANKLIN’S STATICY CAT & OTHER UNBELIEVABLE TALES by our good friend Rolli. He’s been a staff author and reader favorite for years, and we are so proud to be publishing his first collection of children’s short stories. We’re planning to have this one out in December, just in time to be a super stocking stuffer for every book-loving kid on your list. Rolli’s style is definitely unique and his imagination is vast, colorful and… well… a bit kooky! PLUS Rolli’s created fantastic original artwork for every story in the book!
Also, we are putting the finishing touches on a new knowonder picture book called RAINDROP by father/daughter author/illustrator team Mark and Molly Hobson. Follow Sam the Raindrop on an epic journey from the sky to earth and back again. Full of phenomenal, color bursting illustrations that will thrill kids and parents alike!
Lastly, be sure to check out this page on our website where we’ve created a whole new way for you to view and enjoy our enormous collection of **FREE** knowonder short stories. Whether you and your family are on the road, stuck waiting somewhere or just yearning for something new to read at bedtime – knowonder has you covered! Point your phone or tablet at www.knowonder.com where you’ll find tons of easily browsable, entertaining tales written by professional children’s book writers.
And speaking of writers, we are still accepting submissions for young middle grade chapter books (10,000-15,000 words in length); picture books (especially by author/illustrators); and short stories as well as non-fiction literacy related articles for our blog. Simply upload them using our submissions form.
