Remember our great night of 5 (which turned out to be 6) superstar kid's authors??
They will be introducing Leo, a Ghost Story.
Politics & Prose Bookstore will be selling copies of the book, but the event is free and no purchase is required to attend.
All of the books pictured to the left can be checked out from the library (except for Leo which hasn't been published yet). Click on the cover pictures for more information.
Jory John, the co-author of The Terrible Two, was one of our five superstars.
Have you ever been followed home by something warm and furry?
The story of Taft in the bathtub may or may not be apocryphal, but he did weigh an awful lot and he did love bathtubs.
The illustrator for Sam and Dave Dig a Hole was Jon Klasson, who not only was the 6th, unexpected, superstar, but he also presented a program of his own at the library on a November Sunday.

The grand old telephone game (with its important lesson about passing on information)
Battle Bunny was written with Jon Scieszka, another of our superstars.
Kevin Cornell, the illustrator, teamed up with Mac Barnett again. For The Terrible Two (above).
Metafiction - Mac (the author) fires Adam (the illustrator)
Extra Yarn: great Barnett/Klasson pairing.
Jon Scieszka edited this book. He chose work by Adam Rex, David Yoo, David Lubar, Christopher Paul Curtis, Paul Feig, and Jack Gantos. As well as by Takoma Park visitors Kate DiCamillo, Mac Barnett and Jon Scieszka himself.
Eoin Colfer? He is scheduled to visit here this fall. (We're thrilled.)
Books by Adam Rex, such as The true meaning of Smekday and Frankenstein makes a sandwich, are much loved in Takoma Park. We have Smekday both in print and as an award winning CD set. Superb narration.
