From New York Times bestselling authors Shannon Hale and Dean Hale comes a story about making mistakes, learning the hard way, and growing up to become a hero.

Eleven-year-old Diana has an almost perfect life on the island of Themyscira. But even though she has a loving mother and many “aunties,” she is an only child. The only child on the entire island, in fact. Every other person on the island is an adult who’s the best in their trade and mighty in body, while Diana is small, sometimes clumsy, and not particularly good at anything. She’s not Wonder Woman…yet.

What Diana needs is someone her own age whom to talk to. Taking matters into her own hands, she creates a playmate out of clay. It’s all fun and games for a while, until things get out of control and Diana has to decide whether she’s made a new friend…or a monster!

Shannon Hale’s Princess Academy won the Newbery award and is a New York Times, Book Sense and Publishers Weekly bestseller

Wonder Woman is a beloved character with a large fan following in all media

Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman 1984, in theaters worldwide June 2020

Middle-grade original graphic novels have been on the rise in popularity and sales, and this fills a gap in DC’s offerings to this category

Shannon and Dean Hale are the husband-and-wife writing team behind Eisner-nominee Rapunzel’s Revenge (illustrated by Nathan Hale), New York Times best-selling series The Princess in Black (illustrated by LeUyen Pham), and two novels about Marvel’s Squirrel Girl. Shannon Hale is also the author of the Newbery Honor-winning novel Princess Academy, the USA Today best-selling Ever After High series, the graphic novel memoir Real Friends, and others. Shannon and Dean live in Utah with their four children, who all agree that Wonder Woman is one of the greatest superheroes of all time.
