This new middle-grade novel is the second in a series of “Kate Walden Directs” books by Wisconsin children’s author and video arts creator Julie Mata.  Although funny and light-hearted, Kate Walden Directs: Bride of Slugman deals with such serious issues as bullying.

Kate Walden Directs The Bride of Slug Man follows last year’s publication of

KateWalden Final cvr




Kate Walden dreams of becoming a big-time Hollywood director. But finishing her first movie is turning into a big-time nightmare. When Kate’s lead actress and BFF ditches her to hang out with the popular crowd, Kate’s movie seems doomed. Kate writes the perfect revenge script for her former best friend, but a hen hit squad seems to have its own diabolical script to ruin her life. Kate learns that real life is way more complicated than movies, especially when it comes to friends… and chickens.
