A brilliant librarian helps students to welcome big changes in this picture book by Cara Devins with illustrations from K-Fai Steele.

It's a new school year, and something is different. The students' beloved librarian, Ms. Stack, has retired. The new librarian, Ms. Bangle, is not the same! She has different ways of doing, well, everything! How will the students ever adjust?

Change isn't easy, but it can be a positive experience. With a bit of patience, and a lot of heart, it can be positively brilliant.

About the Author

Cara Devins was born and no one is going to dispute that! Don't even try. Where? Boston to Chris and Marie. Later Caitlin joined the party. Cara attended Boston College and went to grad school at NYU. It was in New York City where she wrote for everyone's favorite theater in the basement of a grocery store, Upright Citizens Brigade. Cara has also worked at Google since 2012. Her favorite children's book of all time is Eloise and no one should dispute that either. (The number of disputes here is getting out of control; it's just a bio!) She now lives in Brooklyn with her husband Patrick and their daughter Sienna. The Brilliant Ms. Bangle is her first picture book.

K-Fai Steele is an author-illustrator who grew up in a house built in the 1700s with a printing press her father bought from a magician. She wrote and illustrated A Normal Pig and All Eyes on Ozzy! and has illustrated several other books. She was a James Marshall Fellow at the University of Connecticut, a Brown Handler Writer in Residence at the San Francisco Public Library, and an Ezra Jack Keats/Kerlan Memorial Fellow at the University of Minnesota. Born in Charlton, Massachusetts, K-Fai now lives in Lausanne, Switzerland.
