Preview of "Diana: Princess of the Amazons" by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale and Victoria Ying For 2020

Looks like it's Wonder Woman Younger Reader preview day today – we just ran a preview of Leigh Bardugo, Louise Simonson and Kit Seaton's "Wonder Woman: Warbringer" – here is a slight change of pace. Also from DC but intended for a younger audience, from DC Kids…

Diana: Princess of the Amazons – Written by Shannon and Dean Hale and illustrated by Victoria Ying (January 2020)

Cut off from the rest of the world, Diana had an idyllic childhood on Themyscira. But now 11-years-old, she's beginning to feel more and  more isolated. Though she has many "aunties" and a loving mother, she is an only child. THE only child, in fact.

After an escapade goes  wrong, Queen Hippolyta chastises Diana for not living up to the Amazon standard. Diana just can't seem to  measure up,  no matter what she does! Literally every other person on the island is an adult proficient in their trade and mighty in body, while she is gangly, sometimes clumsy, and not particularly proficient in  anything. She's not  Wonder Woman yet. What Diana needs is a friend; someone her own age whom she can talk to. But when she decides to take matters into her own hands–she may just make a monster instead.

Here's a preview…
