Join Book Passage as we welcome three fantastic children's authors to share their newest work.
Bethanie Murguia presents Zoe's Room ($16.99) and Snippet the Early Riser ($15.99). Zoe rules as Queen of the Universe -- or at least, her room! -- until one day her parents announce that her little sister Addie is moving in. Snippet is a typical snail. He loves to draw. He loves to play soccer. He loves piggyback rides. But unlike other snails, he does not love to sleep in.
Deborah Underwood presents Part-Time Princess ($16.99). At night, a normal little girl imagines she is a princess, but not just a princess who wears pretty gowns and goes to balls. She also gets to fight dragons and tame trolls. But one morning she wakes up and begins to think maybe her royal adventures aren't so imaginary after all... From the best-selling author of The Quiet Book, this jacketed picture book is perfect for every little girl who dreams of being a princess.
Amy Novesky presents Mister and Lady Day ($16.99). Billie Holiday—also known as Lady Day—had fame, style, a stellar voice, big gardenias in her hair, and lots of dogs. She had a coat-pocket poodle, a beagle, Chihuahuas, a Great Dane, and more, but her favorite was a boxer named Mister. Mister was always there to bolster her courage through good times and bad, even before her legendary appearance at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
Zoe rules as Queen of the Universe -- or at least, her room! -- in this sweet, funny companion to ZOE GETS READY.
Zoe is the Queen of the whole Universe ... but her favorite place in the Universe is her own room, where she hosts tea parties, builds empires out of blocks, and gazes out upon the stars.
Snippet is a typical snail. But unlike other snails, he loves to wake up early. While his family is snoozing the morning away, he is wide awake and ready to race to the flowers, make leaf sculptures, and get piggyback rides. With the help of his bug friends, he tries and tries to wake his family up—but nothing works. Until Caterpillar gives him an idea.
At night, a normal little girl imagines she is a princess, but not just a princess who wears pretty gowns and goes to balls. She also gets to fight dragons and tame trolls. But one morning she wakes up and begins to think maybe her royal adventures aren't so imaginary after all...
Legendary singer Billie Holiday owned several dogs, but her favorite was a boxer named Mister. Newton's stylish illustrations keep the simply told story focused on the loving bond between the two. An Author's Note deals more directly with the singer's troubled life, and includes a little-known photo of Mister and Lady Day. Full color.
