Bloomsbury steps back!

From the Bloomsbury Kids website: “Bloomsbury is ceasing to supply copies of the US edition of *Magic Under Glass*. The jacket design has caused offense and we apologize for our mistake. Copies of the book with a new jacket design will be available shortly.”

Three brief sentences. But they mean a lot. Our voices have been heard, and thanks to many readers who complained to the publisher, one step toward a wider multicultural visibility has been taken.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the new cover now!

This is so awesome. I was so happy to hear the news earlier.

It's so reassuring that the public actually has a voice that some companies will listen to. Just a shame that it happened in the first place!
