Author Event with Shelly Johannes

Author Event with Shelley Johannes upside down thinker beatrice zinker shelley johannes mclean and eakin booksellers bookstore author event

We are super, duper excited to welcome Michigan Disney debut author, Shelley Johannes for a visit to celebrate “Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker,” on Thursday, September 28th at 4 p.m. Stop on by after school for a quick snack, too! This is a free event best for 2nd through 5th grade students and reservations are requested. More details coming soon. 


Hanging from trees by her knees, doing handstands . . . for Beatrice Zinker, upside down works every time. She was definitely upside down when she and her best friend, Lenny, agreed to wear matching ninja suits on the first day of third grade. But when Beatrice shows up at school dressed in black, Lenny arrives with a cool new outfit and a cool new friend. Even worse, she seems to have forgotten all about the top-secret operation they planned!

Can Beatrice use her topsy-turvy way of thinking to save the mission, mend their friendship, and flip things sunny-side up?

Shelley Johannes previously spent ten years in architecture—where she fell in love with felt-tip pens, tracing paper, and the greatness of black turtlenecks. She lives in Michigan with her husband and two sons. “BEATRICE ZINKER, UPSIDE DOWN THINKER” is the first book she's written.
