Open If You Dare Book Launch with Dana Middleton
Three best friends come across a mysterious box that says Open If You Dare in this middle-grade novel.
Like Birdie Adams didn’t have enough problems this summer. But Birdie’s Birdie. And if a long-buried box has "Open If You Dare ," written on its lid, then she and her best friends, Ally and Rose, are going to open it.
About the Author: Dana Middleton grew up in Georgia and can’t help mining those childhood experiences for her writing—even though some of them are embarrassing! She lives in sunny Hollywood with her British husband, author Peter Atkins. She is also the author of The Infinity Year of Avalon James.
A beautiful retelling of the legend of Snow and Rose, this gentle fairy tales brims with all the requisite traditions: dwarfs, missing person, enchanted forest and strange creatures. As in her highly imaginative picture books, first time middle grade novelist Emily Winfield Martin paints the sisters, Snow and Rose, as not exact opposites, but more like complimentary gears, who thrive on different aspects of the same thing. Recommended as a read-aloud, this beautifully illustrated tale will delight the young and young-at-heart! - Maureen
