We are heartened and honored to throw a WHIZ BANG of a launch party for F.o.G.* Paul Schmid's new book! We are huge supporters of his first illustrative effort, The Wonder Book, written by Amy Krause Rosenthal, last year, but we're beside-ourselves excited over his new one. Because he illustrated it with his quirky little line drawings full of wonderful singular characters, like before, but he also wrote it too! And it's the start of more than just one book this heretofore illustrator is writing!
Join us for the festivities! There'll be age-appropriate libations (wine for the over 21 crowd, fizzies for those below), treats, along with various celebratory activities related to Petunia and her particular predicament.
*Friend of the Garden, naturally!
More than anything, Petunia wants a pet.
"I'll feed my pet every day," she promises her parents."I'll take her for walks. I'll read stories to her and draw her pictures."
Petunia knows she can take care of a pet, but what happens when the pet she most desires is a skunk?
So . . . this book is full of stuff I've always wondered about . . .
