For lovers of Ivy + Bean, Clementine, and Dory Fantasmagory, this adorable chapter book series is about the adventures of two best friends with the same name.

There's a lot going on in Room 19.

A sleepover? A talent show? And worst of all, new table groups?!

Audrey L and Audrey W were destined to be friends. They both love purple, they have the same stationery, and they have the same name—so of course! But this month, all of Audrey L's joy at finding her first best friend feels a little wobbly. When Room 19 switches seating order, she and Audrey W are separated by a whole classroom—and from where Audrey L's sitting, it looks like Audrey W is having a grand old time with . . . Bettina! Now Bettina's coming with Audrey W to the treehouse. Bettina's joining the Audreys' Talent Show act. Gosh, what ISN'T Bettina involved in these days? Can Audrey L welcome change into her newfound classroom calm? Or is this the beginning of the end?

This bighearted, laugh-out-loud chapter book will resonate with any young reader who's ever felt overlooked or second best. Book two in the Audrey L and Audrey W series, True Creative Talents breathes great gusto into the joys and traumas of elementary school drama.

TONS OF ILLUSTRATIONS: Filled with charming black-and-white illustrations, there's something visual on every page to keep readers interested and engaged.

EMPATHY READ FOR BEGINNING READERS: This book is about embracing people's differences, understanding their similarities, and making new friends.

HELPS KIDS BUILD CONFIDENCE: This book encourages young readers to celebrate the things that make them unique while recognizing that sharing some traits with others isn't a bad thing.

FUNNY WRITING FROM AN AUTHOR WHO REALLY UNDERSTANDS KIDS: Carter Higgins spent many years as an elementary school librarian, so she has lots of experience working with kids. This storytelling is relatable, funny, and genuinely good, with a sense of humor that is sweet, safe, and never mean.
