2nd - 4th Grade Author Visit

I am excited to announce that Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett will be coming to Longwood on November 18 to discuss their newest book Battle Bunny! This book has received starred reviews from Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus, Booklist and School Library Journal. I have been anxiously awaiting its release since I was shown a preview copy last spring and am beyond excited that our students will get the opportunity to hear how they created this unique and hysterical book.

Simon and Schuster's summary of Battle Bunny:

“Alex has been given a saccharine, sappy, silly-sweet picture book about Birthday Bunny that his grandma found at a garage sale. Alex isn’t interested—until he decides to make the book something he’d actually like to read. So he takes out his pencil, sharpens his creativity, and totally transforms the story! Birthday Bunny becomes Battle Bunny, and the rabbit’s innocent journey through the forest morphs into a supersecret mission to unleash an evil plan—a plan that only Alex can stop. Featuring layered, original artwork that emphasizes Alex’s additions, this dynamic exploration of creative storytelling is sure to engage and inspire.”
