The Hula Hoopin’ Queen, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley Newton and written by Thelma Lynne Godin, was released this past spring by Lee & Low Books to widespread acclaim. The book received a Starred Review from Kirkus, and two positive reviews from Horn Book and Booklist. Horn Book called The Hula Hoopin’ Queen “a refreshingly original story,” and Booklist called it “the perfect title for sharing.” Vanessa’s illustrations truly bring Harlem to life in this sweet story of a hula hoopin’ rivalry for the ages. Pick up a copy from your local bookstore, or on the Lee & Low website.
