Meet me tomorrow at the Chappaqua Book Festival

I’ll be presenting by picture books tomorrow 9/29 at the Chappaqua Book Festival, . At 11 am.

Join me as I act up my newest board book,  Dreidel Day, accompanied by my puppets who love to spin, bounce, hop & tumble with dreidels.

They also LOVE kids and let them pet their fur and participate.

Decorate dreidel designs to take home & watch me demonstrate how I created the illustrations for my book.

See you tomorrow!,

Banned Books Week at Larchmont Library

My library is celebrating freedom of expression by inviting local authors like myself to read some of those wonderful books that have been banned merely because they didn’t fit within some ridiculous “moral” reasons.

I chose to read, And Tango Makes Three, written by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson, illustrated by Harry Cole.

If you don’t know about this book, please pick it up. It is a gentle, warm and true story about two male penguins who formed a friendship, much like the  penguin couples around them and were given an egg to hatch.

Schiffer Publishing Author Picnic

This weekend, I attended the annual author’s picnic in Pennsylvania  at Schiffer Publishing, publisher of my next two board books, coming up Spring/Fall, 2019.

Inside, there are editorial departments, huge warehouse with thousands of books and incredible art collection. Outside, there are cotton fields & cows gaze on fresh grass.

I met my amazing editor, Cheryl Weber and publisher Pete Schiffer.
