“96 Facts” News – Holiday Edition

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been working on a series of middle grade celebrity biographies for about a year now. It’s called the “96 Facts” series, and the first two titles in that series, 96 Facts About Taylor Swift and 96 Facts About Timothée Chalamet, are out now from Penguin Random House. Both books are illustrated by the amazing Risa Rodil.

Here’s a TikTok from Penguin Random House’s Penguin Teen imprint about 96 Facts About Taylor Swift:
