LA Edwards has released her debut novel Halo Hattie and the Galaxiers Discovery which is a new children’s book with a black lead character. Less than 5% of children’s books feature black protagonists, and the new page-turner by LA Edwards is set to turn that statistic on its head.
LA Edwards has 20+ years of experience working with children, and her creation reflects black culture whilst entertaining and encouraging the development of children's moral reasoning skills.
Selling out all copies of her book at a soft launch earlier this year, the fast-rising author has also received offers for her work to be stocked in independent book shops and local libraries. As well as fans and book lovers asking for a sequel.
Halo Hattie and the Galaxiers Discovery will also be available as a full celebrity cast audiobook. The work continues to enjoy sterling reviews from several parents who all agree that the book is easy to read, relatable to children, and helps to improve their vocabulary.
I write to increase the representation of black culture in children’s fiction, and through a comedy lens, inspire children to believe they can do anything!
