We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of Serene and the Spirits just in time for Halloween on October 31, 2021. An AUSXIP Kids release that will delight children and the young at heart!

Serene and the Spirits was written by Arielle Strauss Brueland and illustrated by Lucia Nobrega!
It’s a gorgeous book filled with the illustrations that brings the story to life! Serene is a three-year-old Japanese -American girl who lives in Ohio with her moms. Serene is excited that her family will visit her cousins in Japan and attend the Obon’s annual Buddhist summer festival. The celebration commemorates one’s ancestors, and Serene spends the day connecting with the spirits of their ancestors.

The book will be available in print (Hardback and Paperback) on October 31, 2021!
