We have an exciting several weeks of author’s events coming up at Watchung Booksellers – don’t miss out!
To kick off the month of February, we are delighted to present two major children’s book illustrators as part of our Author/Illustrator Storytime Series!
FEB 1 – Brett HELQUIST, “The Fort That Jack Built” – 10:30 AM at Watchung Booksellers
For our littlest customers, illustrator Brett Helquist will be reading from his latest picture book, Boni Ashburn’s “The Fort That Jack Built.” Young Jack has built an AMAZING fort in the living room using the chairs, blankets, and other objects on hand. Unfortunately, when his family wants their things back—well, there go the walls and roof! Can Grandma save the day? Following Storytime, Mr. Helquist will be available for a meet and greet with fans of the middle grade books he has illustrated, including “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket and “Chasing Vermeer” by Blue Balliett.
FEB 2 – Peter BROWN, “Mr. Tiger Goes Wild” – 10:30 AM at Watchung Booksellers
Are you bored with being so proper? Do you want to have more fun? Mr. Tiger does too – so he decides to go wild. But does he go too far? Peter Brown is the award-winning author and illustrator of many bestselling children’s books, including “Children Make Terrible Pets” and “The Curious Garden”.
