Hey, PBnauts! Busy, busy day on the Planet today! So instead of our normal daily posts, here's one of my fave "great-author-and-their-book" photos! It's Peter Brown, the super-talented (and really nice!) author/illustrator of the NY Times Bestselling The Curious Garden. (He even joked about the name of this blog, as his initials are also "PB!" So, welcome to Peter Brown Planet!) This pic was taken by yours truly at the fabulous annual Princeton Library Children's Book Festival a few weeks ago. (It's a fantastic event--if you'll be in the area next year, try to go!) Gobs of amazing authors and illustrators were there: Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Dan Gutman, E.B. Lewis, Nancy Viau, etc. Be sure to scan your local listings and see if there are any kidlit festivals this weekend in your orbit--they're really fun. Got a good one? Be sure to write in and share. Have a great weekend, PBnauts!
Welcome to PB Planet!
If you like picture books, peanut butter, or both, you've crash-landed in the right spot. Fluff your reading pillow, grab a spoon, and stay awhile!
