AUTHOR TALK AND BOOK SIGNING
Doreen Cronin
Thursday, February 18, 4:00 p.m.
Ages 4-10

From the delightful Doreen Cronin and Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator David Small comes Bloom, a picture book about how an extraordinary "ordinary" girl can save a kingdom with the help of a mud fairy. Bloom the mud fairy might be able to turn weeds into flowers and spin sand into glass, but the people of the glass kingdom ceaselessly complain about the trails of dirt and puddles of mud that follow her every step, and finally they cast her out. But when the glass castle begins to crack, and the King and Queen search for the long-banished fairy, they can't find Bloom anywhere. Desperate to save their home, they send their meekest, most ordinary subject, a girl named Genevieve to coax a fairy to save the kingdom. Genevieve finds Bloom and it take the two girls working together--and some very messy hands--to accomplish the extraordinary.

LAUNCH PARTY AND BOOK SIGNING
Cylin Busby
Saturday, February 20, 2:30 p.m.

Join local author Cylin Busby in celebration of the publication of her adventure-filled middle grade novel, The Nine Lives of Jacob Tibbs, which has already received two starred reviews (see below*)! Captain Natick does not want to take a kitten on board his ship when it sets sail in 1847, but his daughter convinces him that the scrawny yellow cat will bring good luck. Onto the ship the kitten goes, and so begins the adventurous, cliff-hanging, lucky life of Jacob Tibbs. Along the way, Jacob will encounter loss and despair, brave thunderous storms at sea, face down a mutiny, survive on a desert island, and above all, navigate the tricky waters of shipboard life and loyalties.

*"With engrossing action and great character description and development, Busby has created a story that will enthrall fans of animal fantasy."Booklist starred review

*"An outstanding choice for fans of middle grade nautical adventure and animal narrator novels, especially cat fans, with appeal beyond genre readers. Highly recommended."School Library Journal starred review
