Elissa has always loved to pretend that she has magical powers. But when a strange new sickness comes to her town, she learns that not everything can be fixed with a magic wand. It’s time for her to cope with some unexpected changes—and maybe learn a new kind of magic along the way. An early chapter book for the beginning reader (ages 7-11), Elissa and the Coronavirus tells a simple and heartfelt story about a young girl learning to cope with the coronavirus pandemic. It includes basic, age-appropriate information alongside a reassuring message about generosity. The author and illustrator donated their portion of the profits to Feeding America.
