Happy Book Birthday to POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY!

We are so thrilled to be celebrating Jennie K. Brown’s debut today!

image1POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY is officially in the US today, and it’s already sold to China (Grand China) and Czech Republic (Albatros)! To celebrate, Jennie will be on her local ABC News Station for a lunchtime chat so today isn’t just her book debut, but it’s her television debut as well!

POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY: What if your teacher could read your mind just because she was born on a Thursday? Or the kid next to you in class could turn back the clock just because he was a Wednesday? In the quirky town of Nova, all of this is normal. Poppy Mayberry, an almost-11-year-old Monday, should be able to pass notes in class or brush her dog, Pickle, without lifting a finger. Poppy’s Monday telekinesis ability has some kinks and that plate of spaghetti she’s passing may just end up on someone’s head. If that’s not hard enough, practically-perfect Ellie Preston is out to get her and Principal Wible wants to send Poppy to remedial summer school to work on her powers! It’s enough to make a girl want to disappear. If only she were a Friday.
