Former Secretary of State and Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton’s first book for young readers, inspired by the themes of her classic New York Times bestselling book It Takes a Village, and illustrated by two-time Caldecott Honor recipient Marla Frazee, asks readers what can they do to make the world a better place?

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company for a small fortune and is looking forward to a life of leisure.

Once the rights to my book were sold, editors affiliated with the publishing house then went through the manuscript repeatedly.When mom is getting ready on her way to school to teach, she always sends me to my grandmother's house. There's a reason We Are Legion was named Audible's Best Science Fiction Book of 2016: Its irresistibly irreverent wit!
