In Conversation with Emma Wunsch, author of “Miranda and Maude Series”

Hey everyone,

We have a very special episode for you today!

BANANA PANTS Book 2 in the MIRANDA and MAUDE series will be out in PAPERBACK on 8/13! RECESS REBELS book 3 in the MIRANDA and MAUDE series will be out on 9/10/19!

In our exciting interview, Emma tells us about how she got the idea for Miranda and Maude when she was trying to get her then-three old to brush her teeth. Since the three-year-old LOVED princesses but didn’t love brushing her teeth, Emma made up a story about a princess named Miranda Rose who LOVED pink and lived in an enormous castle.

Tune in to hear all about Miranda and Maude and their adventures!
