Marcia Wells will be talk to kids about book covers, marketing, and the teamwork behind each book they see on the shelf.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Marcia Wells teaches middle school students in Vermont. She is also a member of SCBWI and holds a Master's degree in Spanish Literature. She lives with her husband and two young children in Vermont.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Art, mystery, fun and friendship, combine in this illustrated middle grade series debut. Sixth grader Edmund Xavier Lonnrot, codename "Eddie Red," has a photographic memory and talent for drawing anything he sees. When the NYPD is stumped by a mastermind art thief, Eddie becomes their secret weapon to solve the case, drawing Eddie deeper into New York's famous Museum Mile and closer to a dangerous criminal group known as The Picasso Gang.
"A sure pleaser for Cam Jansen grads or anyone fond of knotty, lightweight capers solved with brainpower (and a little luck)."
"This is a strong start to a promising new series, and as Eddie would say, it's uber-cool."
TIME magazine voted Eddie Red one of the '5 Best Books for Your Kids this Summer (According to Other Kids)'!
