The beginning of two great middle grade series! It’s time to team up at the Avengers Institute and the Tokyo Olympics…

In Preeti Chhibber’s Avengers Assembly #1: Orientation, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is the new kid at the Avengers Institute. The big news this year is an academic decathlon, and Kamala teams up with her friends Miles Morales (aka Spider-Man) and Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl) agains a team led by some kids who fight less than fair.

Two-time Olympic bronze medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani introduce the Kudo Kids in Kudo Kids: The Mystery of the Masked Medalist! Andy and Mika are in Tokyo for the Summer Olympics, trying to follow the clues and discover the identity of the Masked Medalist, when an even bigger mystery emerges: who is trying to stop their team?

Moderated by Heidi Schulz, author of Hook’s Revenge and Giraffes Ruin Everything.

Maia and Alex Shibutani

Maia and Alex Shibutani (aka the ShibSibs) are two-time Olympic bronze medalists, three-time world medalists, Four Continents Champions, and two-time U.S. National Champions. At the 2018 Winter Olympics, they became the first ice dancers of Asian descent to medal at the Olympics and are only the second sibling duo in the history of the sport to share an ice dancing medal. Off the ice, the ShibSibs are known for sharing their personalities, experiences, and interests on social media to bring new audiences to their sport. They travel the world and enjoy spending time together (most of the time), eating food (all of the time), and meeting new people (any time!). The Mystery of the Masked Medalist is their first book.
