August 2017 Horn Book Herald: Back-to-School Edition

Welcome to our back-to-school issue of The Horn Book Herald, in which we chat with school-story master Andrew Clements, recommend new books for students of all ages as well as essential reading for parents and teachers, and take a break from the school-day grind with pleasure reading and extracurricular activities.
