Nina Laden Celebration!

 

NinaLaden

 

Ballard resident and F.o.G* Nina Laden is the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of many books for children, from The Night I Followed the Dog to Peek-a-Who?  This event commemorates her 20th year in print and the release of her first game, based on her bestselling book Peek-a-Who?

The Night I Followed the Dog was released in August of 1994. It is exceedingly rare for a children’s book to stay in print for that long.

New York Times bestselling Peek-a-Who? has been a perennial bestseller for Chronicle Books since it was released in 2000. It has spawned additions to the series, including Peek-a-Zoo! released last year among others. Just last month Chronicle Books released a game based on it.

Peek-a-Who? Matching Game is a classic matching game featuring 36 jumbo-sized cards adorned with Nina Laden's eye-catching illustrations from her bestselling Peek-a books. Children will adore pairing lively, brightly colored gnus, choo-choos, and cockatoos as they develop memory, concentration, and identification skills.

Come celebrate this milestone and local luminary who lives among us!

Treats, games, prizes!

"I have a dog. Nothing exotic or special, just an ordinary dog. In fact, I always thought he was a boring dog. What I mean is, he can fetch, roll over, and shake hands, but mostly he sleeps and eats."
