WOW Middle School Reading Ambassadors invite you to a book event for Clarice the Brave with the author, Lisa McMann, and a special guest, Matt McMann!

Meet Lisa McMann, author of Clarice the Brave. From Penguin Random House, “Clarice is a young ship mouse grieving the loss of her mother when a mutiny forces her onto a small, leaky boat with a dangerous cat. Worse, she is separated from her younger brother, Charles Sebastian, who is trapped aboard the great ship. Clarice and Charles Sebastian were taught to always be careful—but they will need to grow bold if they are to survive…and find one another again.”
