The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
19. New Series to Sink Your Teeth Into
MICHAEL HUTCHINSON, AVIAQ JOHNSTON, KEVIN SYLVESTER
Moderator: France Perras
The adventures never end in this showcase of the best and most beloved fictional series, which will introduce young readers to their next favourite read.
What’s better than a great book? A whole series of page-turning adventures. An empowering mystery series described as “Hardy Boys meets the rez,” Michael Hutchinson’s The Case of Windy Lake introduces The Mighty Muskrats: four intrepid cousins working to solve a suspicious disappearance. Those Who Dwell Below draws from the Inuit mythology of author Aviaq Johnston’s childhood to create a rich, other-worldly journey, as young Pitu continues on his quest as a shaman. Almost Epic Squad: Mucus Mayhem author Kevin Sylvester shares his hilarious, unconventional superhero: Jessica Flem, a girl who can turn her snot-filled tissues into magical helpers to fight evil. Engaging and charming, young readers will be drawn into new worlds they won’t ever want to leave.
Suitable for grades 5-7.
