LLEGAR A SER PEDRO available today!

LLegar A Ser Pedro, the new Spanish edition of Growing Up Pedro, is officially available today!

When I set out to write about Pedro Martinez, I always hoped it would be published in Spanish. So I'm grateful to my publisher, Candlewick Press, for making it happen. I'm really excited to know that Spanish-speaking kids will now have access to this story of brotherhood, perseverance, and baseball.

I was truly honored to have my story translated by renowned Spanish translator Teresa Mlawer, who has written the Spanish versions of some of the all time classics of children's literature, including Goodnight Moon and Where the Wild Things Are.

A Junior Library Guild selection, Llegar A Ser Pedro is available now on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or an independent bookstore near you.
