Maggie Tokuda-Hall Signed Copies
Maggie Tokuda-Hall has an MFA in creative writing from USF, and a strong cake-decorating game. She is the author of the 2017 Parent's Choice Gold Medal winning picture book, Also an Octopus, illustrated by Benji Davies. The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea is her debut young adult novel, which was an NPR, Kirkus, School Library Journal and Book Page Best Book of 2020. Her new graphic novel, Squad, has already been optioned by PictureStart and Lionsgate for television. She lives in Oakland, California with her husband, son, and objectively perfect dog.
With censorship and book bannings rapidly on the rise, it is more important than ever to support and amplify stories like Maggie’s Love in the Library. Starting today, for every copy of this book purchased, Folio Books will donate a copy to a local school (up to 50 books).
In this second vibrant fantasy from Maggie Tokuda-Hall, companion to her best-selling debut, The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea, a diverse resistance force fights to topple an empire in a story about freedom, identity, and decolonization.
