Join us for an afternoon of robot dogs and zodiac powers with middle grade authors Justin Dean and Cindy Lin!
Awesome Dog 5000 is a robotic dog with very real power-ups. Awesome Dog can "bark" a sonic boom, "walk" at speeds over three hundred miles per hour, and "fetch" with an atomic cannon. A wild action-comedy told through a mix of text and black-and-white illustrations, with a mystery to solve at the end, Awesome Dog 5000 is awesome. Author Justin Dean is an award-winning writer of television commercials for brands such as South Park, Conan, and the Olympics.
Usagi, born in the year of the wood rabbit, has extraordinary zodiac gifts. But she and her sister, Uma, must keep them secret while the mysterious, vicious Dragonlord hunts down those with zodiac powers. After Uma is captured by the Dragonguard, Usagi must call upon her powers and journey to Mount Jade and decide who she stands with, and who she trusts. Claire Lin has worked for Sony Pictures Entertainment and has written and produced many multimedia news features for children, one of which received a Peabody Award. The Twelve is her debut novel.
