This is a popular fantasy series that is being made into a major motion picture and coming out in August. Wouldn't it be fun to read the entire series before the movie hits theaters?

Goodreads summary link

This book is a chapter book companion to the Caldecott winning picture book Finding Winnie. Winnie's Great War does not have a book trailer so I will share the book trailer for Finding Winnie instead.

A fifth grade student who is one of HMS Library's most avid readers (you know who you are, SG) pleaded with me to order the rest of the books in this hybrid series (we currently own just the first title).  He let me know it's his favorite series of all time. High praise from this student! And the illustrator of this series is also the illustrator of Julie Falatko's Snappsy the Alligator books. Of course, I will be sure to get these for our library.  This title is the fourth in the series.
