Falling In

Now in paperback, seeing is believing --- unless, of course, you don’t know who the real witch is, or if there is a witch at all!

Isabelle Bean is trying to pay attention to her teacher, but she hears a buzz in her ear that she can’t seem to shake. She thinks it sounds like she’s teetering on the edge of the universe --- and she’s not that far from the truth. Isabelle’s so distracted by the buzz that she gets sent to the principal’s office, and then while awaiting her punishment, she tumbles into an adventure --- into another world that’s a little bit different, a little bit Hansel and Gretel-y, a little bit like a fairy tale. Which would be great, but since she shows up in fairy-tale land wearing her favorite high, pointy boots, the fairy-tale people start thinking that Isabelle is a witch --- and not just any witch, but the witch!

From Edgar Award-winning author Frances O’Roark Dowell comes the unlikely story of Isabelle Bean --- an ultimate misfit, an outsider extraordinaire, and not a witch!
