For years, I've been hearing from my friends in the kidlit world about the Princeton Children's Book Festival, and I am thrilled to be participating this year. The roster of authors and illustrators is incredible, with such luminaries as Lauren Castillo, Greg Pizzoli (check out his great illustration for the event above), Dan Yaccarino, Rebecca Stead, Tor Seidler…the list goes on, and on. Look for me in the purple tent, where I'm sharing a table with my pal Lori Richmond, who's debut picture book, A HOP IS UP was just released.
I'll be introducing the world to YOU ARE NOT A CAT! written by award-winning author Sharon G. Flake, a few days before it's publication date of October 4th. I'll also be signing some of my other picture books, including A BIG SURPRISE FOR LITTLE CARD and THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED. For the more science-minded picture book readers, I'll also be signing copies of the first two of my collaborations with author David A. Adler: THINGS THAT FLOAT AND THINGS THAT DON'T, and SIMPLE MACHINES. And if that's not enough to entice you, I'll have stickers, buttons, make your own Little Card giveaways, and more!
The weather report looks like it will be a perfect fall day in Princeton, NJ. For more information, check out the festival website here.
