A most magnificent morning for kids comes from revered children’s author Ashley Spires, who presents the long-awaited sequel to the runaway bestseller The Most Magnificent Thing. This is the story of a girl who, with her dog at her side, loves to make things. Her brain is an “idea machine,” so full of ideas she can hardly keep up… until one day, it isn’t. Kids will be enthralled by this engaging author, and a fun character trying to get her ideas back! Grades K–3.
