FEATURED KIDLIT with Vicky Fang - How to Draw Ava Lin from AVA LIN, BEST FRIEND!

Brand-new first grader Ava Lin is determined to find a best friend—even if she’s a bit unclear on how to go about it—in this launch of a funny, super relatable chapter-book series.

Ava Lin is six and a half years old, and she loves bubble tea, finding treasures, and animals (note the 117 varieties of pets on her wish list). She’s very good at drawing and balancing pasta on her nose. And there’s a Very Exciting Thing happening in her life right now: tomorrow is her first day of first grade! Which means she gets a new backpack, new pencils, and a new lunch box. But what she really wants to get in first grade is a best friend, which isn’t as easy as she thought.

Ava’s quest has her navigating some confusing social rules, with unintentionally comical results—but she always manages to wriggle out of her mishaps in ways young readers will find very familiar. With an engaging text, humorous graphic panels, and black-and-white illustrations, Vicky Fang draws on her Chinese American family’s experience to create a heroine kids will instantly love.

ABOUT Vicky Fang

Hi! I’m Vicky Fang. I’m a children’s book author and illustrator. I’m also a former product designer who invented things—like cars that talk to each other, robots you can build at home, and games you can play with your voice. I write and illustrate books to encourage kids to be creative problem solvers—whether that be in STEM, at home, or with friends. I am the author and sometimes illustrator of twenty-two new and upcoming books for kids, including Layla and the Bots, Invent-a-Pet, Friendbots, Best Buddies, and Ava Lin.

Outside of writing (and reading books!), I like eating, papercraft, crafting new anything, dancing, and playing with my kids. I live with my husband, my two boys, and one pet rhinoceros beetle in Mountain View, California.
