[music: Takeover- Kwamz & Flavor] Hi everyone, my name is Elizabeth Agyemang and I’m so excited to share that my debut middle grade graphic novel FIBBED [clapping sound effects] will be coming to Razorbill in Spring 2022. It’s about twelve-year-old Nana who after telling too many far fetched tales, is sent to stay with family in Ghana for the summer. She discovers magic in the village forest, and must team up with the mythical Ananse to stop an evil corporation from stealing the village magic for profit. I’ve been writing and illustrating since I was a kid. Ummmm, [Glockenspiel sound effect] this is a book I wrote and illustrated when I was 11 years old. In it I say, my favorite song is simple and clean good taste. And I’m looking forward to the summer so I can get a PSP. Stay tuned for Fibbed coming in Spring 2022.
