"Having taught MAUS in my 8th grade curriculum for almost ten years and seeing first-hand the power that well-written graphic novels can have with students of all abilities and interests, Marika McCoola's upcoming novel, Baba Yaga's Assistant is sure to be a hit with Middle Level educators. A talented and passionate artist/author, amazing things are sure to continue to come from Marika that will undoubtedly enrich classrooms lucky enough to hear her speak in person or to experience her work."
