Award-winning illustrator Derek Anderson will host a publication party for his new book, Story County: Here We Come! at the Red Balloon Bookshop on February 12th at 10:30 a.m. Story County is the place where friends Farmer, Dog, Pig, Chicken, and Miss Cow create a special farm through teamwork. It is the kind of place where anything can, and usually does, happen. Together these friends paint the barn a rainbow of colors, plant jelly beans and candy corn, and fashion a fabulous scarecrow, until presto! — the farm is done. Or is it? This sounds a little like Farmville to me.
Also this weekend, On Sunday February 13th at 2:00 p.m., you can join Cori Doerrfeld when she introduces her new book, Penny Loves Pink. Penny is the world’s number-one pink fan. She loves her pink sunglasses, her pink tea set, her pink stuffed animals, and even her pink potty! Penny discovers, however, that there is something she just might love even more than the color pink! Penny Loves Pink is a perfectly pink addition to every little girl’s library. After all, can a girl ever have enough pink?!
