The Caledcott Award winning husband & wife team Erin & Philip Stead are coming to Hicklebee's!
Thursday, September 12 @ 3:00 (presentation at 3:30)
We've admired their work and applauded soundly when the Caldecott was announced for A Sick Day for Amos McGee (we think it was an especially good call) Now we get to meet them and we can't wait to see their new picture books.
Philip has written & illustrated Hello, My Name Is Ruby. Ruby is a plucky little bird who ventures through life, making new friends, learning new skills and asking questions which may have some very surprising results.
This is an event not to be missed!

If You Want to See A Whale, you will need to know what not to look at.
