The Scraps Book: Notes from a Colorful Life by Lois Ehlert

THE VERY PERSISTENT GAPPERS OF FRIP by George Saunders and #StinkyCheeseMan Illustrator Lane Smith

🍪🍪Y'ALL! #GeorgeSaunders will be at BookPeople for a special storytime on Sunday, December 6! There will be cookies. There will be milk.🍪🍪

In the seaside village of Frip live three families: the Romos, the Ronsens, and a little girl named Capable. The economy of Frip is based solely on goat’s milk, and this is a problem because the village is plagued by gappers: bright orange, many-eyed creatures the size of softballs that love to attach themselves to goats. (If that is not enough to convince you to read this book…)

#ShareYourShelf Chapter 1: Demi


“Out of many bookshelves in the house I share with two literature PhD students, two cats, and a dog, this is the one that has most of our kids’ books. (All of our signed books are together on a shelf in our living room, so there are a handful of kids’ books there too.) And since I read the most kids’ books…most of these are mine. I’m most proud of my advance readers’ editions of THE THICKETY series by JA White and THE ELEMENTAL TRILOGY by Sherry Thomas, because they look so nice on my shelf!” (Demi is BookKids events and marketing coordinator.)
