Frank Beddor's First Young Hatter Book To Be Announced On The View On Friday??


whoopiThey announced the female Thor there. They didn't announce A-Force there. But apparently Frank Beddor will get his new Looking Glass Wars novel announced on The View tomorrow on Friday.

It helps that Whoopi Goldberg is a far, and even backed his graphic novel on Kickstarter, picking the package that would see her turned into a character in the book.

And tomorrow on Friday at 11am on ABC, I understand that the presenters of The View will announce  his new Young Adult series and prequel to the Looking Glass War novels, Hatter Madigan: Ghost in the H.A.T.B.O.X. written with Adrienne Kress. With cosplayers in the studio playing characters from the novel, as above…

Swordplay!  Newfound friendships!  School bullies!  Budding love!  Self-serving rivals!  Scheming adults and soulless rebel plotters!  Welcome, to the world of Cadet Hatter Madigan, who has just entered  Wonderland's Millinery academy as one of the freshmen 'Caps'. Those born to be Royal Bodyguards are trained at one of the four academies  (Heart, Clubs Diamond, Spade) linked to the royal houses.  Cadets will study the mystic and martial arts, as well as the sometimes more difficult art of successfully dealing with others. Once Hatter begins his training he is thrown into a competitive world of both boys and girls vying to be the best.  Arsenal cubes, blade chasers and Hat blocking 101 are all rites of passage the young milliners first take on together but must eventually perfect, separately.

As readers of The Looking Glass Wars already know, Hatter will grow up to one day serve as bodyguard to two queens and become Wonderland's most famous traveler.  But in the Young Hatter series—each installment of which chronicles a single year of our hero's education—readers can live through the experiences that shaped this extraordinary Wonderlander. They will share young Hatter's joy as he forges new friendships at the Millinery; suffer his frustrations as he strives to maintain these friendships; come, and witness young Hatter struggle with the first stirrings of love; watch him defend himself against rival cadets and contend with the expectations of teachers all too familiar with his infamous older brother … and all while he tries to keep up with his studies.
