Adventures In Makerspace....My New Graphic Novel Series With Capstone!

Who doesn't love an exciting adventure with a school librarian?
Especially when it is an adventure in a Makerspace!  This is exactly what is coming in the new series Blake Hoena and I wrote with Capstone.

In fact, there are four books in the series including....
both low-tech and high-tech missions. 

The Capstone site states,

STEAM ahead with these graphic novels perfect for your makers! Matt, Codie, Eliza and Cyrus love hanging out in their library’s maker space. Their librarian, Ms. Gillian, has a bit of magic about her, sparking their imaginations and the occasional journey through time! These four friends really get creative as they explore everything from fairy-tale forests to the planet Mars. Their adventures even inspired a theme song which readers can access, along with an activity related to each book, via Capstone 4D, Capstone’s free augmented reality app.

We love the graphic novel styled illustrations by Alan Brown.  They really bring these adventures to life in such a fascinating and creative way.  This series will surely hook any maker and reader!  
Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing more about the series including how to view them online, Makerspace resources included in each book, how this project came about, exciting things included within the books and more.  
I can't wait to share even more with all of you!  

You can now preorder the series and they will be out in September 2018.
