Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award 2022, Short-listed
Maya’s imagination sets the stage for her friends to act out her feminist play. Can she make room in her queendom for the will of the people? A funny picture book about leadership and fair play for fans of King Baby and Olivia.

Maya is a bossy, burgeoning playwright and loves to have the kids in her Mile End neighborhood bring her scenes to life. Her latest work, about a feminist revolution, is almost ready for public performance. But as her actors begin to express their costume preferences, Maya quickly learns that their visions may not match hers…and as both Director and Queen, Maya demands obedience and loyalty in her queendom of equality! But she soon realizes—with the help of her friends and subjects—that absolute bossiness corrupts absolutely!

Series Overview: Each book in the Mile End Kids series focuses on a different child in a group of friends who play together in a city alleyway inspired by Isabelle’s own Montreal neighborhood—an urban Peanuts gang! While the books are linked in terms of setting and characters, each also stands alone.

PERFECT INTRO TO COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS: Told in graphic novel-style panels and speech bubbles, this is a great book to get kids into comics and graphic novels.

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED ILLUSTRATOR: Isabelle’s work has been recognized and praised around the world, and her fans include Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett.

LEARNING TO LEAD: A fun and playful look at leadership.

GIRL POWER: Maya is a strong heroine who fights for equal rights for girls and establishes a queendom!

RELATABLE HUMOR: This slyly funny and relatable story of a highly creative and bossy girl who learns how to get along with others and play fairly will resonate with kids and adults alike.

DIVERSE CHARACTERS: Maya herself is a child of color, and her friends come from many backgrounds.

THIRD IN AN ACCLAIMED SERIES: Colette’s Lost Pet and Albert’s Quiet Quest have received praise and recognition around the world and been sold into numerous territories. But Maya’s Big Scene works beautifully as a standalone too. Book 4 will be published in Spring 22.

“Simultaneously supports social-emotional growth and celebrates collaborative creativity.” —Kirkus Reviews

"Children need to learn how to get along with one another; the jubilantly performative setting of this inventive book is a perfect expression of that truth.” —Imaginary Elevators

“Arsenault’s playful pencil, watercolour and ink illustrations are a great match for the graphic novel style she uses to tell her stories.” —Globe and Mail

“Montreal’s Arsenault puts her distinctive style to work, using pencils, watercolour and ink to fill various panels and full pages with the story of a little girl who puts on a play with her friends, but who takes her directorial and starring role a little too seriously, threatening to derail the entire production.” —Montreal Gazette
