Shark Princess Bay Area Events

I hope to see you soon at one of my events! It’s so exciting to be able to meet readers again! I will read, draw and celebrate the release of SHARK PRINCESS! It’ll be fintastic!

Shark Party!

Do you know what it’s like to draw hundreds of sharks?! I do! It’s painful but also fin-tastic! I’m excited to share the cover of the second book in my new early reader graphic novel series SHARK PARTY!

And it’s only 6 weeks from the release of the first book SHARK PRINCESS! A slew of bay area events are planned (more on that soon) but you can pre-order your copy now from your favorite local bookstore!

ALA in Washington DC

This weekend I will be speaking at the American Library Association conference in Washington DC. I will talk about comics and my upcoming series, SHARK PRINCESS. If you happen to be at the conference please come by my panel (I will also be signing books after!)

I’m a lifelong reader and proud book nerd so an ALA invitation is one I’ve dreamt of. Being among people who make and love books is a glorious benefit of this work and I’m very grateful.

I also heard that the fireflies are out in abundance and it’s been years since I’ve seen them so I’m doubly excited!

I hope you have a magical weekend!

Shark Princess!

Eeee! SHARK PRINCESS cover reveal!! Finally I can share my early reader graphic novel series with Viking/Penguin! Beautiful colors by Elizabeth Kramer. Book one will swim to you next fall!

Thank you to John Schu for the cover reveal.

“Shark Princess is about two fishy friends, Kitana and Mack, who learn about themselves through exciting underwater adventures. Kitana is a charming and gentle shark while Mack is playful and energetic, and I wanted to capture those differences in the cover. I was delighted to work with the design studio, Plaid Again, on the iconic title treatment. They helped realize my vision for a bold, clean design. I put my whole heart into this series and I am so excited to share it with readers!”

A new early reader graphic novel series from the critically acclaimed creator of Pashmina, perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly.

Meet Kitana—a Shark Princess and the first of her kind. Her allergy-ridden, best friend, Mack, wants to be one too, but he worries that his sharp teeth and big sneezes make him too dangerous to be a princess.
With Kitana’s help, Mack realizes his unique shine. When Mack puts on his crown for the first time, these Shark Princesses are ready to explore the ocean and embark on a fintastic adventure!

Nidhi Chanani’s signature artwork brings this underwater series to life in a spunky tale about friendship and redefining who and what a princess can be.

Look for Shark Princess on September 13, 2022.
