Joan Carris (Bed and Biscuit series), Lisa Martin (Anton and Cecil series), and Kevin Sherry (The Yeti Files series) will discuss their middle grades books about animals—from yetis to kittens—who have something to say.

Why should you attend?

“[Carris’] is a small, remarkably sweet beginning chapter book with more than its fair share of amusing illustrations and gentle humor. Animal lovers are bound to lap it up.”–Elizabeth Bird, New York Public Library

“[Martin’s] story is well paced with descriptive language that firmly places readers in the midst of dangerous storms, sea battles, and islands full of strange animals.”―School Library Journal

“Waves of exuberance flow out of [Sherry’s] crowd-pleaser, in which a squid proudly points out how much bigger it is than any shrimp, clam, octopus or fish in the neighborhood.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
