EXTRAORDINARY ORDINARY ELLA Ella is extraordinary. Extraordinarily ordinary, that is. Not graceful like Carmen or musical like Kenji, Ella is determined to prove herself at the school talent show. But when every attempt to find an artistic talent falls flat and her own ordinary acts of kindness steal the show, Ella discovers just how extraordinary ordinary can be! ISBN: 978-1-68152-502-0 Author: Amber Hendricks Illustrator: Luciana Navarro Powell Price: $17.99 Page Count: 32 Trim Size: 9.25” x 8.25” Format: Hardcover with jacket Age: 4–8

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Amber Hendricks grew up with a passion for reading, and by age 11 she was writing and binding her own “books.” Amber has worn many hats in her career, but she has always circled back to her first love of telling stories. Amber currently resides in Missouri with her husband and two children.

ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR Luciana Navarro Powell grew up in Brazil, where her school never put on a talent show. If it had, Luciana would have worked behind the scenes drawing the posters. She now lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and her two sons, where drawing is her full-time job, as well as making sure her sons grow up to be kind citizens like Ella.
