KidLit Authors at the LA Times Festival of Books


Pelican Publishing asked me to sign some books at their booth for the LA Times Festival of Books. I had never attended, and so was looking forward to experience “Bookstock”. I had a great time meeting some kidlit authors:


This made my day. I got to meet Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett (again). Too much awesome!


With James Burks, illustrator of The Monstore and author/illustrator of Bird & Squirrel.


Here is Debbie Diesen, author of The Pout Pout Fish, and Salina Yoon, author/illustrator of Found and Stormy Night.


Here is author/illustrator Andrea Zimmerman.


And here is yours truly in costume to lure customers. Read or die!

  1. What a fun festival. Great to see you there. Love your costume!

  2. That is some get-up, Henry! That big smile kind of nullifies the fierce and threatening effect you probably shooting for 😉 Granted, how could you NOT smile at an event like that with all those amazing people! Excuse me, but I’m blown away here! I mean, come on—JON KLASSEN?! MAC BARNETT?! JAMES BURKS?! ALL of them! Thanks for sharing this and TLA 😀 Just love this stuff!!!
