EDMOND — ‘LITTLE WINGS: THE ONE AND ONLY WILLA BEAN’

BY CECILIA GALANTE

Every cupid has a one-of-a-kind flying friend, right? Wrong!

Willa Bean has Snooze, an owl, but the new girl in school, Lucy, has an owl, too! And Lucy’s owl is bigger, and maybe even smarter, than Snooze.

What if Mr. Wingston overshadows Snooze at Noble Nimbus Day? Nope, nope, nope-ity nope. Willa Bean has to make sure Snooze is the best owl at Cupid Academy!

Although Cecilia Galante secretly wishes she could fly, she keeps her feet firmly on the ground in Kingston, Penn., where she lives with her husband and three children. Galante is the author of five other novels for young adults and middle school kids, including “The Patron Saint of Butterflies,” which was a Book Sense Pick, the Northeast Indie Booksellers YA Book of the Year and a Recommended Read on Oprah’s website.

Ages 6-9.
