Paul Schmid, Hugs From Pearl

PaulSchmid
 

We are huge fans of author / illustrator (and F.o.G.*) Paul Schmid. 

We have been huge fans since his very first book, an illustration job for Amy Krouse Rosenthal (see list below).  We then fell in love with his very first authorial effort (in addition to the illustrations, which he also did, naturally!) which created Petunia's world. 

Tonight we celebrate the second (of three!) books in the series, Hugs from Pearl, which is darned near a perfect picture book.  

Come celebrate the new book launch of one of the kids book luminaries living among us. 

*Friend of the Garden, of course!
