NEW YORK – The best-selling team behind the “Princess in Black” children's series is looking to an even younger audience for its latest project.
Starting next March, writer Shannon Hale and illustrator LeUyen Pham are launching a “kitty and unicorn” picture book series, Abrams Books for Young Readers announced Wednesday.The first of three planned books is called “Itty Bitty Kitty-Corn," which “celebrates the magic of friendship and of uplifting themes of believing in yourself, embracing your identity, and seeing others for who they truly are in a glittery, oversized package perfect for little hands,” according to Abrams.
Pham and Hale have previously worked together on the graphic memoirs “Best Friends” and “Real Friends” and on six “Princess in Black” books, most recently “The Science Fair Scare.”
On her own, Hale was a finalist in 2006 for the Newbery Medal for best children's book for her fantasy novel “Princess Academy.” Pham was a Caldecott Medal finalist earlier this year, for best children's picture book, for "Bear Came Along."

Tracee Ellis Ross Celebrates Her Haircare Brands Ultaversary With A Hilarious Instagram Video
Actress Tracee Ellis Ross surprised her 9.5 million Instagram followers with her most recent share, a hilarious video in which she celebrated her haircare brand’s one-year anniversary at Ulta Beauty. Tracee started out the post by flashing a huge smile at the camera as she posed near a display of her products in the store. Her brand’s name was written in bold yellow lettering, and there was a picture of Tracee on the display behind the rows of items.
Tracee walked back in forth in front of the set-up, looking joyful in a cream-colored jacket. She also mentioned that her mother, legendary singer Diana Ross, was in the store with her, and Diana even hummed a little tune for Tracee to dance to as she celebrated before appearing herself. Diana rocked an all-black ensemble with a pair of sunglasses despite being indoors, and her hair was styled in voluminous curls.
Tracee’s hair was pulled back in a sleek bun, putting her flawless features on display, and she paired the cream-colored jacket with some light-wash jeans. She added a few accessories to finish the look, including a pair of white pointed-toe slip-on stiletto mules, and a leather belt layered over top of the jacket that cinched her waist.View this post on Instagram

Tracee discussed a few of the items, sharing some of her favorites, before heading to the cash register and purchasing the products. She finished the clip with some goofy footage of her model walking outside the Ulta Beauty store, holding her bright orange bag filled with Pattern Beauty products aloft as she flashed a huge grin.
She paired the silly video with a heartfelt caption celebrating the milestone in her brand’s growth, and her followers absolutely loved the share. The post racked up over 200,900 views within just nine hours of going live. It also received 1,073 comments from her eager audience in the same time span.
“The ending of this video kills me EVERYTIME,” one fan wrote, loving Tracee’s sense of humor.
“If I could wake up with just an ounce of her joy and enthusiasm for what seems to be everything. She has an infectious happiness,” another follower added, accentuating her comment with heart emoji.
“You are such a breath of fresh air. Congratulations,” a third fan remarked.
“You are cracking me up with this!” another fan commented.
A few days ago, as The Inquisitr reported, Tracee shared another Instagram clip in which she shared her personality with her audience. She rocked a flouncy golden gown for the Emmys, and had a small stretch of red carpet set up outdoors. She wore her metallic gown and strutted up and down the strip of carpet, cracking jokes and making the individual filming the moment laugh throughout the recording.
