Judy Schachner is Coming!

And her new Skippyjon Jones book came out today!

Judy Schachner, author and illustrator of the GREAT Skippyjon Jones series, will be at Little Shop on Thursday, October 18th at 4:30 p.m. to present her new book and to do a signing.

I love Skippy and I love the Skippy books. Until today the original Skippyjon Jones book and Lost in Spice were my two favorites.

But I've got to tell you, Cirque de Olé really enters the big top. It's funnier and a bit more bizarre that the others -- and when you're dealing with a Siamese cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua, everything already starts out bizarre. In addition, the art is really vivid.

Out of all our favorite authors, Judy is up there with our most favorites. She connects so well with kids who have come to her past signings in Decatur as well as with parents. Judy is warm and encouraging and funny and surprising and we're thrilled that she's coming!

Now if we can only get her to move to Decatur.
