Last summer when I joined the National Writing Project, I had the pleasure of working with a truly creative and inspirational author named Marquin Parks (click here to follow him on Twitter). Marquin was always very excited about the book series that he was working on and ready to share his creation with the world.
He told some great stories and really inspired me to work on some more creative projects and not simply focus on my blog. Because of The Writing Project and Marquin, I now have two books that I'll be featured in that are being published this summer. So I've personally been waiting for his fantastic book series to get out of his head and onto paper for quite a while. I was very excited to learn last week that the time has come, and Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School isn't just an idea anymore, it's a real book - rapidly soaring up the charts!
I'm especially excited to support Marquin because he is a teacher and a friend. He knows what kids love to read, especially boy readers. Last summer, I spent four weeks with Marquin on the Eastern Michigan University campus. We spent hours each day collaborating with other writers. I am so proud to see his work reach publication. I know the readers of this blog will be excited to support him on his first book!
The Amazon Book Summary:
Follow the zany adventures of Wrinkles Wallace and his classmates who have to come together as a team to outsmart their teacher and pass 5th Grade. After all, they’ve failed it a number of times--so many that Wrinkles is already 28-years old. The students deal with real-world issues and themselves in order to overcome the antics of their diabolical teacher, Mr. Sittin’ B. Quiet. (By the way, he’s only ten.) Join them in this upside-down world where non-stop humor serves as a guide to character-building and success.
Marquin has graciously offered to give a first edition, signed copy of his book away to one of our lucky readers! Simply enter the give-away below... this will be a fantastic addition to your classroom library!
