A Kirkus Star for STEP RIGHT UP

On the last day of my VCFA summer residency, which was the first day of my final semester, I received a joyous surprise. Kirkus posted a starred review of STEP RIGHT UP: HOW DOC AND JIM TAUGHT THE WORLD ABOUT KINDNESS. A star! Imagine that!

Here’s how the review closes:

“An incredible story that ought to be widely known—a must-read.”

Daniel Minter’s art adds so much richness and character to this story. The book wouldn’t be the same without him.

Go ahead and read the full review here. Then join me in a happy dance!

And mark your calendar for the October 15, 2016 release.

Join me for the launch party October 23, 2016 at Book People in Austin.
