Astrid and Apollo and the Wonderful Wax Museum

From the Set Astrid and Apollo

The pressure is on for Astrid and Apollo to pick heroes for their wax museum project, but who to choose?
Eight-year-old Hmong American twins Astrid and Apollo are excited for the wax museum project at school. The students choose famous people and pretend to be talking statues of them! Apollo knows right away who he’ll pick, but Astrid isn’t sure. No one she can think of feels right to her. She wants someone special, someone whose name everyone should know…but who? Finally, with some surprise help from her little sister Eliana, Astrid discovers a person she’s proud to present! Showcasing a warm sibling relationship of a Hmong American family, as well as themes of exploration and tradition, Astrid and Apollo will delight young readers.
