Stephanie Campisi

Picture book and middle grade author

Stephanie Campisi is an Australian-born, Washington-based children’s book author. Her work spans zany middle grade novels, funny picture books and the odd poem. Current and forthcoming titles include The Ugly Dumpling, Luis and Tabitha, The Five Sisters and Very Lulu.

The Ugly Dumpling is ready to be served up!

The Ugly Dumpling's launch date is looming, so keep an eye out at your local bookshops and libraries for this delightful piece of whimsy.

Alternatively, if you're a Portland local or like the idea of a road trip, swing by Powell's at 11am on Saturday the 9th for the official launch. I'll be reading and signing stuff, there'll be dumpling-themed temporary tattoos, and you get to go to Powell's. Not bad, in all.
