For those of you who’ve been waiting, the next Kennedy Stern novel (can you believe we’re already to book six?!) will be coming out as soon as we put the finishing touches on the cover and weed out those last sneaky typos.
I don’t want to give away too many spoilers (although I will be posting a few teasers here before long!), but I do want to let you know that Woong will show up in this book quite a bit.
If you don’t know Woong yet, he’s the star in Flower Swallow, which has won awards from Illumination Book Awards as well as Moonbeam Book Awards. This little snippet might give you a taste of what an endearing character he is.
Woong was sitting in front of his Battleship display, shielding it from view. “What’s for snack?” He scrunched up his eyes and stared at Willow. “And why’s her hair that color? Were you born that way, or did you get it painted?”
“Dyed,” Kennedy corrected.
“Who died?” Woong’s eyes widened. “Someone died?”
“No, I was just talking about Willow’s hair.”
“Her hair’s dead? Do you mean all the way dead or just mostly dead? ’Cause there’s a difference, you know.”
“I just mean when you color your hair, you say that it’s dyed.”
“You can’t say that something is died. You say something is dead. That’s better grammar.”
I can't wait for you to read the rest of the adventure with Woong, Kennedy, Willow, and all the others. Just like our excerpt is about a little kid, this week's Prevailing Prayer Podcast episode deals with teaching kids to pray. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, Sunday school teacher, or an adult who loves children, I hope you find some encouragement (and maybe a good laugh or two).
