Capstone Press Expands Popular High-Interest, Middle School Brand for Spring

NEWS RELEASE

Capstone Press Expands Popular High-Interest, Middle School Brand for Spring


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Dec. 21, 2009 – Capstone Publishers imprint Capstone Press, publisher of accessible, innovative children’s nonfiction for beginning, struggling, and reluctant preK-8 readers, announces two new additions to its popular middle school, high-interest brand Velocity. Set for release next month, the new series include Hip-Hop World and Bad Guys.


Hip-Hop World explores the history, culture, fashion and stars of this mainstream movement; Bad Guys delves into fascinating tales of history’s bad guys. As with all Velocity titles, both series feature energetic text and high-impact visual design to hook reluctant readers in middle school grades.


Velocity’s popularity with librarians and teachers was immediate upon its launch in Fall 2009. Reviewers lauded The World of Mixed Martial Arts as “an ideal entry point,” (Booklist) and “Fans of the sport will be mesmerized by these books,” (School Library Journal), while the RPM series was praised as “the best to come along in some time,” (School Library Journal).


“For nearly 20 years, Capstone Press has been the go-to publisher for high-low materials. We continue to answer to the demand and redefine high-interest books for reluctant and struggling readers. Adding Velocity, which answers to the need for materials for struggling students in middle school, to our award-winning lineup of high-interest brands Blazers, Snap Books, and Edge Books, was a natural progression of our collection,” said Matt Keller, President of Capstone Publishers Nonfiction.
