Elizabeth Webster and the Court of Uncommon Pleas (Elizabeth Webster (1))

Kirkus Reviews on William Lashner's fabulous second installment of the Elizabeth Webster middle grade series:

"...a spirited romp through a world of ghosts and goblins with the effortlessly charming Elizabeth at the front of it all. It brings back the exciting mix of legal and paranormal activities that made the first entry such a charmer."

Elizabeth Webster and the Portal of Doom is out this October, and book #1, Elizabeth Webster and the Court of Uncommon Pleas, out in paperback next month! Little, Brown Books for Young Readers @Wendy Sherman

Excited to be going into the New Year with some amazing buzz for 2020 books. Check out these advance blurbs from some of the biggest authors in the world and some of the hottest rising stars for Leslie Streeter's powerful and funny memoir BLACK WIDOW, out in March from Little, Brown and Company. Happy New Year!

"Black Widow is a very special one of a kind book, a wonderfully touching love story that will make you laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page. Even more outstanding is Leslie Gray Streeter's voice. You won't soon forget Black Widow." --James Patterson

"I can only marvel at Leslie Streeter's resilience,
humor and candor. Black Widow is a funny, heartwarming read about one of the worst things that can happen to a person. We should all be this grounded in our day-to-day lives." --Laura Lippman

"Tender, clever and endearing, this story of love and loss will have you alternating between laughter and tears. Leslie's mix of break-it-down humor and heartbreaking truth makes this book playful and deep in all the right places." --Tembi Locke, author of From Scratch

“Black Widow” is a beautiful love story that also happens to be a grief story. Leslie Gray Streeter tells the whole tale—falling in love, marriage, adopting, parenthood, death, moving on—with her captivating wit. Only she could make Black Widow so deeply moving, painfully funny, altogether unforgettable.” --Rob Sheffield, author of Love is a Mix Tape

“Grief is a heavy darkness with spots of unexpected, unpredictable light. Leslie’s book is a light for those still stuck in the dark--a sad, funny, personal story filled with universal truths about life and love and loss.” --Nora McInerny, author of No Happy Endings

"This is a great read for anyone who's suffered loss of a loved one. I'd say it's chicken soup for any soul in grief. Anyone who reads this will undoubtably feel consoled."
--Aphrodite Jones, author of Cruel Sacrifice

"Walking in Leslie's shoes through this book made me humbled and filled with courage. It made me realize how much I love my family and that LOVE conquers all. I’m sorry to see the book end. I can’t recommend it enough." --actor Johnathon Schaech

'Colors of the Mountain' author Da Chen dies at 57

I am saddened to share the news of the passing of Da Chen, a wonderful writer and friend who I had the privilege of working with for the last fifteen years. Da's many bestselling books, including the memoirs Colors of the Mountain and Sounds of the River, the novel Brothers, and his most recent children's book, Girl Under a Red Moon, just published this past September, continue to move readers around the world and will keep his voice alive forever. Da was a special man, an artist who touched people with seemingly endless generosity and mentorship and joy as well as with his words on the page. We will miss him and send our deepest condolences to his wife Sunny, his son Michael and daughter Victoria and the rest of his friends and family.

Chen's breakthrough came in 1999 with the critically acclaimed, best-selling “Colors of the Mountain,“ in which he recounted the abuses he and his family suffered during the latter years of China's Cultural Revolution.
