STEP RIGHT UP Seeing Kirkus Stars

Final Cover. Step Right Up cover hi res small

Congratulations to Austin SCBWI member Donna Janell Bowman for receiving a starred review from Kirkus for her book STEP RIGHT UP: HOW DOC AND JIM KEY TAUGHT THE WORLD ABOUT KINDNESS, illustrated by Daniel Minter. Kirkus says, "Minter’s acrylic-painted linoleum-block prints combine with Bowman’s story of a former slave who trained a brilliant horse for a memorable book . . . an incredible story that ought to be widely known—a must-read." We can't wait to get our hands on this book October 15th, when it releases!
