The Princess in Black and the Case of the Coronavirus: A PSA Booklet
authors: Dean Hale; Shannon Hale
illustrator: LeUyen Pham
In the words of author Shannon Hale:
“LeUyen, Dean, and I are all parents self-isolating at home with our children. The anxiety and distancing are difficult enough for our older kids, but we know that younger kids might be having an even harder time. We hoped that it would help if a familiar book friend like the Princess in Black talked them through it. Even the Princess in Black is staying home! Even Princess Sneezewort had to cancel playdates! LeUyen had the idea of creating a short comic to download and share widely so that caregivers could have an extra tool for talking to children. Our goal is both to help kids understand what’s going on and to help them feel less alone.”
Available as a free digital booklet, here is a child-friendly coronavirus public service announcement starring the Princess in Black and her friends from the New York Times best-selling series!
