Betty Birney, author of the wildly popular Humphrey series, has a new series of books for younger readers. Everyone's favorite classroom pet is now starring in a series of short chapter books, Humphrey's Tiny Tales. With charming illustrations, less pages, and an easier reading level than the original Humphrey books, Humphrey's Tiny Tales are just right for emergent readers making the transition from beginning readers to chapter books. In Humphrey's Really Wheely Racing Day, when Humphrey goes to Mandy's house one weekend, he learns that her hamster has something Humphrey has never seen before--a hamster car!

AUTHOR TALK & BOOK SIGNING
Elisabeth Wolf
Saturday, November 8, 2:30 p.m.
Ages 8-12

Join Elisabeth Wolf for a reading in celebration of the latest entry in her delightful Lulu series, Lulu in Honolulu. If only real life were like the movies. Instead, the Harrison family's fabulous Hawaiian vacation has fallen apart, thanks to Lulu's parents' massive blockbuster film shoot. Their tightly-scheduled family time has been taken over by extra time on the set-and they're totally missing out on the real Hawaii. Lulu decides to teach her family the meaning of ohana, but her genius plans are seriously backfiring. (She didn't mean to unleash a rampaging pug onto her parents' movie set. Oops!)

Available for signing:

  • Lulu in Honolulu  $6.99p
  • Lulu in La La Land  $6.99p

STORYTIME & BOOK SIGNING
John Rocco
Saturday, November 15, 10:30 a.m.
Ages 4-8

Join award-winning author/illustrator John Rocco for stories, a drawing demonstration, and craft in celebration of his wonderful new book, Blizzard. Based on his childhood experience during the now infamous Blizzard of 1978, this beautifully illustrated companion to his Caldecott Honor book Blackout is told with a brief text and dynamic illustrations. The book opens with a boy's excitement upon seeing the first snowflake fall outside his classroom window. It ends with the neighborhood's immense relief upon seeing the first snowplow break through on their street. In between the boy watches his familiar landscape transform into something alien, and readers watch him transform into a hero who puts the needs of others first.

  • Blizzard  $17.99
  • Blackout  $16.99
  • Wolf! Wolf!  $16.99
