Thanks to everyone who twittered and linked to my last two posts on agent and editor appearances at conferences in 2011. Please note that these two posts are now permanent pages. You can access them through the links on my menu bar above: Appearances 2011: Agents and Appearances 2011: Editors.
It’s time for the weekly Kidlit author/illustrator events to pick up in Houston. For this week and next week, we only have one event happening:
Blue Willow Bookshop, 14532 Memorial Drive
Alex Beard, Illustrator
In Monkey See, Monkey Draw, the monkeys that live at the foot of the Mbuno Hills in Africa love to play games. One day while playing Elephant in the Middle with their large friend, their ball, a nut from an ancient baobab tree, rolls into a cave where the troop of monkeys never go. It is dark inside and possibly filled with horrible beasts! When they venture in, they discover instead that the walls are covered with paintings of animals. Elephant shows the monkeys how they too can create artwork using their hands and feet as “stamps” and mud as their medium. But things are never quite as easy as they seem.
In order to meet Alex Beard for book personalization, you must purchase Monkey See, Monkey Draw from Blue Willow Bookshop.
