The cockatoos and toucans are back—please join me at Book Passage in Sausalito to celebrate TOUCANS, TOO, the companion picture book to COCKATOO, TOO. Come on out and spend some time at our great new local indie bookstore—there will be music, drawing/coloring, treats, and giveaways. (Maybe a live cockatoo will even make an appearance.)
Featuring: Bethanie Murguia & Emma Bland Smith
What questions do you need to ask yourself to do your best work? As an author and illustrator, Bethanie will speak about finding the right words, the right images, and the ideal marriage of the two for your story. She will use her own books as well as favorites from other authors as case studies. This talk will be appropriate for both writers and illustrators.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Walnut Creek
Please save the date of January 9th to celebrate COCKATOO, TOO. l'll be at the wonderful, cozy Diesel Bookstore (Larkspur Landing) with tutus, boas, and a real live cockatoo to welcome this book and its wacky dancing birds to the world. Please join me.
COCKATOO, TOO has received a starred review from Kirkus who called it "delightfully hilarious" and "sure to become a read-aloud favorite".
