The Vanderbeekers Make A Wish by Karina Yan Glaser

Karina Yan Glaser: Hi, Mr. Schu!

Me: Hello, Karina Yan Glaser! 

Karina Yan Glaser: You have revealed ALL of the books in the Vanderbeekers series so far! 

Me: I'm so lucky! Thank you! 

Karina Yan Glaser: I’ve finished your sentences, we’ve done interviews, we’ve had Katya Longhi (the cover illustrator for books 3, 4, and 5) finish your sentences, and you revealed the Vanderbeekers book trailer! This time, for the fifth Vanderbeekers book, I thought we could try something different…

Me: I'm intrigued.

Karina Yan Glaser: I wanted to share the inspiration behind the animals in the books, because when I talk to readers they always want to see, hear, and talk about how my pets inspire the Vanderbeeker pets! 

Me: WOW! I love, love, love this idea.

Karina Yan Glaser: Here are some behind-the-scene notes!

The Vanderbeekers and their pets have more adventures in the fifth installment of the series, The Vanderbeekers Make A Wish! In this story, the Vanderbeekers are planning the absolute best surprise party for their dad’s fortieth birthday. But when he suddenly leaves town for an emergency, chaos ensues when unexpected visitors show up.

Publication Date: September 21, 2021
