I am so excited to announce that KARATE KID will be released on September 3, 2019. I recently received the F&G (folded and gathered)— the colors are so vibrant and Karate Kid’s expressions are priceless. Mark Chambers has done such an amazing job illustrating the different Karate moves. Each time I read the book, I have a new favorite.
I’m so thankful to Julie Matysik at Running Press Kids, my agents Liza Fleissig and Ginger Harris, and all my writing friends who are some of the smartest, kindest, and thoughtful people I know.
A goat kid loves to do karate! And he is sure to inspire young kids to try karate as well. Follow Karate Kid as he goes through the major stances and karate moves, teaching readers to channel focus and build strength through each pose. Karate Kid‘s simple, measured, and meditative text is complemented by playful yet instructive illustrations by Mark Chambers to teach youngsters how to get involved in karate–and to have fun while doing so, too.
