On Monday, we brought our newest release, Nina in “That Makes Me Mad!”, to a new generation of Hilary Knight fans at Barnes and Noble Tribeca.
Over ninety local 2nd graders gathered at the bookstore for the reading and were asked, “What makes you mad?”
“When my little sister pretends to be my mom,” said one girl.
“When my little sister jumps on me when I’m trying to sleep,” said another.
The children sat still for the reading of the book by TOON Books staff member Leigh Stein, and Hilary, the artist behind the legendary Eloise books, but were jumping out of their chairs when he drew sketches of two lucky audience members (hey, even we were jealous!).
“I tended not ever to do books after the fame of Eloise,” says Knight, “But this was so really different.”
