What A Week!

Monday: Kevin Henkes!!!

Thusday: Ridley Pearson!!!

When we have one fantastic author visit us in a month, we're thrilled.  When we have TWO of our ALL-TIME favorite authors visit us in the SAME WEEK, well ... our socks are knocked clear off both feet and down the street!

Kevin is a phenomenal picture book author and illustrator -- Little White Rabbit just came out -- who also writes chapter books.  (Junonia will be released on May 24th.  Diane read an advance copy and loved it!)  Ridley is probably best known for his adult crime novels, but he writes lots of great adventure books for kids.  Power Play, the fourth book in the Kingdom Keepers series, was just released last week (and The Bridge to Neverland, the fifth and final book in the Peter and the Starcatchers series, comes out in August).

We have some signed copies of many of their books for sale at the Shop.

Thanks, Kevin!  Thanks, Ridley!

Now we have to go out and buy new socks.
