What's New!

When one is a talented and creative artist, interesting things can happen.

We have two new books in the store by Ian Falconer.  First is Olivia Goes to Venice featuring Ian's spunky pig, Olivia!  There is a wonderful sweetness in each of the Olivia books, along with a spontaneous nature that makes me look at Olivia's experiences through fresh eyes.  I LOVE Olivia.

On quite the other end of the spectrum, Ian has also provided illustrations for David Sedaris' new Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.  This series of short fiction is something different for David; the protagonists are now chickens and storks and bears and rabbits (and squirrels and chipmunks).  I LOVE David Sedaris.
