The Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher

Sophie Young is a smart girl who is in love with everything about Chinese culture.  Grace Yang, her best friend, is a cunning and clever superspy-wannabe.  Together, they are Young and Yang, unstoppable sleuthing duo!  There’s something…OFF… about their school counselor Dr. Agford, but every time they think they know what it is, they’re thrown a curve.  Worst part is, Sophie is in pretty big trouble for spying in the first place.  What’s a spy to do?  Find out in the book The Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher, and sign up for our Kids’ Writing Workshop August 15 when you will get to meet her in person and hear her tips and tricks for improving your writing!

I love the tone of the book and the humor packed into every page.  I love other characters too, like smart-mouthed Trista and shy, smart cyphering Rod!  You’ll fall in love with these characters, too–and maybe learn how to create your own!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
