On the hunt for an outstanding new middle-grade author?
The next time you walk into a bookstore, ask for Celesta Rimington.
THE ELEPHANT’S GIRL (2020) and TIPS FOR MAGICIANS (2021) were published by Crown Books for Young Readers and I cannot recommend them enough.
Here’s the jacket copy for THE ELEPHANT’S GIRL:
And here’s the jacket copy for TIPS FOR MAGICIANS:
Both titles have super-likable main characters who draw you into their unique journeys of self-discovery. Both are fantasy, but not in the sense of LORD OF THE RINGS or HARRY POTTER. The stories feel realistic to me with touches of magic, and I love the vibe.
A ticket to mystery, adventure, and fun, while giving readers plenty to think about, these tales are not to be missed!
