It’s finally Fall! And we’re excited to announce our releases through the end of the year. We’ve got a new series targeted at some of our youngest readers, as well as a follow-up to Grow Happy and an empowering standalone title about a girl and her wheelchair. We hope you enjoy these upcoming titles, and rest assured that there are many more wonderful things in the works at MP!
