Spring 2020 Kids Indie Next List
“In a return to the surreal Wayside School, this book stays perfectly in touch with the earlier works in the series. The characters remain wonderfully quirky, and the everyday oddities of the school are just as riveting as before. Sure to appeal to school-aged children who can recognize the weird in their schools.”

Tidesong follows young witch Sophie who wants nothing more than to study magic and to study hard! But her plans for training are not going so smoothly; especially not when she accidentally beaches a water dragon named Lir, and their magic becomes entangled—hopefully not forever! This gentle story surrounds you with engaging characters and magical world-building, with wonderful commentary around our own toxic internal dialogues of self-criticism and fear. It’s a story of learning to trust yourself, in the face of both your successes and your mistakes.
