About Lily's Grooves:

Carrie and Ed Simon are excited to open their new music emporium. Their only concern is their rambunctious kitten, Lily. This frantic feline cannot be left alone without wreaking havoc on the Simon’s home. The only force strong enough to calm little Lily is the power of song. Do Carrie and Ed dare bring their kitty to the store for the grand opening? Can they trust that the music will work its’ wonders on Lily and keep her feeling mellow and groovy?

Christopher Minor is a lifelong music and cat lover from Dedham, MA. Once upon a time, he had a kitten named Lily who loved to sit back and listen to music with him.

About We Want Snow!:

In this raucous, rhyming plea for snow, a group of youngsters imagines the cold-weather delights they'll enjoy once winter arrives. From sledding down hills and skating on ponds to building snow forts and snowmen to sharing crackling fires and mugs of hot cocoa, they want snow and plenty of it The snow can't arrive soon enough. But once the flakes start to fall, are the youngsters in for more than they bargained for? Readers young and old will enjoy this celebration of winter's snowy activities, recalling past pleasures and imagining future ones.

Jamie will read & do a few rhymes, Emilie will do presentation of artwork & sketches.

Jamie A. Swenson has worked as a children's librarian/early literacy storyteller for over twenty years. In that time, she has been blessed to share her love of reading/books with countless children and their families. WE WANT SNOW: A WINTRY CHANT! is Jamie's eighth book for young readers. While not EVERYONE loves snow - almost EVERYONE loves dreaming about the fun activities that snowy weather allows (especially hot chocolate and snuggling by the fireplace with a good book!).

About Hornswoggled!:

Deer wakes up to find one of his antlers is missing…and there’s a tennis racket in its place? One by one his friends also uncover that their important items from glasses to lucky boots have been swapped with silly, useless replacements like donuts and swim flippers. They’ve been hornswoggled! (Hornswoggled means tricked.) It’s pure poppycock! (Poppycock means nonsense.)

Once they gather together to find out what happened, will they find the true thief or be outfoxed? Laugh along with a hilarious cast of animal characters searching for the mysterious trickster in this humorous whodunit bursting with exciting, wacky words that kids will love.

Josh Crute was hiking on a mossy mountain when he peeked into the wrong rock cleft and discovered a doorway to another dimension. He hasn’t been seen since, but manuscripts postmarked from the hills of Alabama arrive periodically on his publishers’ doorsteps. He is the author of several picture books including Oliver: The Second-Largest Living Thing on Earth and Jonas Hanway’s Scurrilous, Scandalous, Shockingly Sensational Umbrella.
