Celebrating 5 Years of
Story Monsters Ink®!


Our August line-up includes …


Interviews with R.J. Palacio, Andrew Zimmern, Amy Parker, C.R. Stewart, K.J. Kruk, and Frank Murphy, who tell us about their newest books! And don't miss our interview with 7-year-old Titan Gabrielse, who is looking for some fellow heroes to join his special club!

Our guest columnist this month is Max Elliot Anderson, who wonders if shorter books are better for kids. Also inside, Larissa Juliano opens her teaching toolbox and discusses storytime lessons for little ones, and Julianne Black takes the second star to the right and straight on to a popular book store. James Patterson hands over his column to Jordan Chouteau, who has written a monstrous book to help children face their fears, and Judy Newman talks about her fond and not-so-fond memories of summer camp.

Be sure to check out our newest book reviews, summer reading list, and Nick's review of Maiden. It's all inside!
