PETER LEE'S NOTES FROM THE FIELD

Eleven year-old Peter Lee has one goal in life: to become a paleontologist. Okay, maybe two: to get his genius kid-sister, L.B., to leave him alone. But his summer falls apart when his real-life dinosaur expedition turns out to be a bust, and he watches his dreams go up in a cloud of asthma-inducing dust.

Even worse, his grandmother, Hammy, is sick, and no one will talk to Peter or L.B. about it. Perhaps his days as a scientist aren’t quite behind him yet. Armed with notebooks and pens, Peter puts his observation and experimental skills to the test to see what he can do for Hammy. If only he can get his sister to be quiet for once—he needs time to sketch out a plan.

To be released March 2, 2021. Published by Tundra/PHRC.

KRISTA KIM-BAP

All Krista wants to figure out are the three F's: food, family and friends...

 

Krista and Jason have been best friends since preschool. It never mattered that he was a boy with reddish-brown hair and she was the "Korean girl" at school. And Jason has always loved hanging out with Krista's family -- especially for the food!

Now in 5th grade, everyone in Krista and Jason's class is preparing their Heritage Month projects. But Krista has mixed feelings about being her school's "Korean Ambassador." Should she ask her sometimes grouchy grandma to teacher her class how to cook traditional Korean kimbap? 

With a new friendship pulling her away from Jason, and the pressure of trying to please her grandma, grade five is going to be interesting!

IN THE PRESS

"Author Ahn writes authentically about the struggle of assimilation while maintaining cultural tradition... A sympathetic portrayal of a typical 11-year-old trying to fit in, with a bit of Korean flair."

biography

Angela Ahn was born in Seoul, but her family immigrated to Canada before she could walk. Armed with a BA, BEd, and MLIS, she worked for several years as a teacher and a librarian, but lately has been working from home, taking care of her two children. When she can, she writes novels for kids. She’s lived most of her life in Vancouver, B.C., with brief stints working in Hong Kong and Toronto. Although she likes to blame her parents for her atrocious Korean language skills, she will admit that she was a reluctant learner. Angela’s proud to say that her children are bookworms, and that every member of her family has a stack of novels by their bed. She’s grateful to be able to write books where her children can see faces, just like theirs, on the front covers. Angela’s first book, Krista Kim-Bap, was published in 2018 and her second book, Peter Lee’s Notes from the Field, will be released March 2021.
