Allergies!

For many years Ayun Halliday has written a hilarious zine about her children and their adventures called "The East Village Inky"

Good news for graphic novel and zine lovers! She has just published a new graphic novel for middle grade readers called "Peanut" about a girl named Sadie who concocts a peanut allergy to attract attention at her new school. Along the way she finds true love and lots of trouble. Kids, don't try this at home. This is a cautionary tale about lies and trying to be someone you're not.

To read about real allergies, check out local writer Sandra Beasley's "Don't Kill the Birthday Girl!"
