Picture Book Authors and Illustrators Come To Little Shop - Score Big

Author Julie Andrews was scheduled to come to Little Shop on May 21st following the release of The Very Fairy Princess, but postponed her tour due to a family emergency.  The book, written by Ms. Andrews and her daughter, debuted at #5 on the New York Times Best Sellers List, and stayed around there for seven weeks until she came to Little Shop on July 9th.  Then Princess soared to #1!

Author Jamie Lee Curtis came to Little Shop on September 18th to read from her new book, My Mommy Hung the MoonThen it debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List!

Author and illustrator Mo Willems came to Little Shop on October 7th to read from his new book, Knuffle Bunny FreeThen it debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers List!

Robin Preiss Glasser, illustrator of Fancy Nancy and the Fabulous Fashion Boutique, came to Little Shop to do a read from her book on October 20th.  Then it debuted at #2 on the New York Times Best Sellers List!  (Knuffle Bunny was still at #1.)

I'm starting to notice a trend here.

Actually, each of these books are great and certainly would have found their way onto best sellers list without us.  But we're glad to help!

More than that, we're grateful to each of these authors and illustrators for visiting us.  It is always special.
