Ephesus Elementary

Author & Illustrator Ursula Vernon will visit Ephesus Road Elementary on Wednesday, September 16! 


Ursula Vernon is the award-winning author and illustrator of the popular Dragonbreath series.  Her Eisner-nominated comic "Digger" won the Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story, and Dragonbreath won the Sequoyah Award in 2013. Ursula lives in Pittsboro, North Carolina, where she works full-time as an artist, writer, and creator of oddities.  In addition to the Dragonbreath series of graphic novels for young readers she has also written numerous short stories and webcomics for adults, as well as the illustrated novel for young readers Castle Hangnail.  Her new series, Hamster Princess, begins with Harriet the Invincible which was just released last month! 







About Hamster Princess: Harriet the Invincible: Harriet Hamsterbone is not your typical princess. She may be quite stunning in the rodent realm (you’ll have to trust her on this one), but she is not so great at trailing around the palace looking ethereal or sighing a lot. She finds the royal life rather . . . dull. One day, though, Harriet’s parents tell her of the curse that a rat placed on her at birth, dooming her to prick her finger on a hamster wheel when she’s twelve and fall into a deep sleep. For Harriet, this is most wonderful news: It means she’s invincible until she’s twelve! After all, no good curse goes to waste. And so begins a grand life of adventure with her trusty riding quail, Mumfrey…until her twelfth birthday arrives and the curse manifests in a most unexpected way.
