Valentine puppets

I am so thrilled to be a participating author/illustrator associated with ArtsWestchester.

I get to meet wonderful kids and share the experience of creating magical art and stories.

Here I am with some very talented storytellers from Enrico Fermi Elementary School in Yonkers, NY who told their love stories through heart- head puppets we created out of scraps of paper, toilet paper cardboard rolls, fabric, feathers & goggly eyes. Each puppet was different and I brought along my very special puppet friend, Masha who is also a character in my book, The Klezmer Bunch.

So have fun this Valentine and treat a friend to a heart puppet!

Out Of the Box

Meeting Hervé Tullet is a very unique experience. Hervé is the Enfant Terrible of the picture book world. He breaks all the rules and runs wild with colors, shapes and beaucoup of imagination. Even signing a book is a celebration of what picture books should be all about when Hervé fills the page with colorful letters of your choice lucky book recipient.
