Today on The Lerner Podcast we talk to Beth Mills, creator of Ella McKeen, Kickball Queen.
Beth is the creator of Ella McKeen, Kickball Queen. In this picture book, first grader Ella is the undisputed kickball champion until a new girl named Riya shows up—and shows Ella up at recess. Ella reacts by throwing a fit! Will she ever be able to show her face on the kickball field again? Kirkus Reviews called the title “an emotionally intelligent book with strong feelings.”
Beth discusses her inspiration for the book, how she became an illustrator, The Snurtch, and more.
