Mary Winn Heider & Chad Sell "The Stupendous Switcheroo"

Beloved local authors Mary Winn Heider and Chad Sell will be at The Book Cellar to celebrate the launch of their new graphic chapter book The Stupendous Switercheroo: New Powers Every 24 Hours! 

ABOUT THE BOOK:

What would happen if you woke up every single day with a different, surprise SUPERPOWER?! Find out in this zany, hilarious illustrated novel by Mary Winn Heider and Chad Sell.

The morning of his mom's business trip, Switcheroo wakes up to discover he has telekinesis. Which is super convenient when he has to give his babysitter-robot the slip to fight crime all day. But it's less convenient when he's recruited to fight crime again the next day, only to realize he can no longer move objects with his mind. Instead, he can talk to cats! Fun, but not nearly as useful. A new superpower every day should be exciting, right? What could possibly go wrong?

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Chad Sell grew up in a small town in central Wisconsin. He lived in a neighborhood much like the Cardboard Kingdom, where he and his friends bounded through backyards in imaginative games and outfits. He also drew a lot and came up with all kinds of colorful characters. His favorites were often the villains, because despite being different and misunderstood, they were powerful and confident, and they got the best costumes. Chad lives in Connecticut with his husband and two cats.

Mary Winn Heider is the author of two middle-grade novels: The Losers at the Center of the Galaxy and The Mortification of Fovea Munson. She is currently working on a theatrical adaptation of FOVEA for The Kennedy Center with the composer Justin Huertas. Her picture book The Unicorns Who Saved Christmas, illustrated by Christian Cornia, is out now. Mary Winn has an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and she lives in Chicago, where she teaches creative writing residencies with PlayMakers Lab, performs at theaters around the city, and sometimes helps out at The Mystery League.
