Acadia Files: Summer Investigations, The
About the Author and Illustrator
THE ACADIA FILES is a STEAM series that uses stories to make scientific inquiry relatable. Written by Katie Coppens, an award-winning middle-school teacher who is a columnist for Science Scope (the magazine of the National Science Teachers Association), the books are Illustrated by Holly Hatam, the NYT best-selling illustrator of Dear Girl.
Acadia Greene applies the scientific method to find out who keeps stealing the blueberries that ripen on the bushes, why her hair is curly, why the sun wakes her so early in the summer, and why the tide submerges her sandcastles.
