Dear TOON friends! In the upcoming months, you’ll have a few different chances to catch TOON’s books and authors at events in different cities across North America. Here’s a round-up of what’s on the schedule.
November 28th, 5:30pm: Candlewick Press will represent TOON’s books at McNally Jackson’s Educators Appreciation Night in New York City
McNally Jackson welcomes New York City educators and representatives from several major publishers and small presses to share ideas over food and drinks, preview fall and winter titles, and meet-and-greet with other educators, authors and illustrators. Raffles and giveaways of galleys and teaching supplies will happen throughout the night.
December 1st, 2:00pm to 3:00pm: Frank Viva will sign his books at Little Island Comics in Toronto
We’re excited to announce Frank Viva’s appearance for his new book A Trip to the Bottom of the World with Mouse! Part of the stellar Toon Books line, A Trip to the Bottom of the World with Mouse is great for beginning readers or to share together as a picture book. Kids love the repetition in this story of Antarctic discovery and animal encounters; grown-ups will appreciate the striking art by one of Toronto’s top designers
Please join us on Saturday, December 1st between 2 and 3pm, when creator Frank Viva will read from and sign copies of this gorgeous new release. There will be activities for kids and schmoozing for adults.
It’s getting to be that time of year, and we think Frank Viva’s books are the perfect beginning to your holiday shopping. So, everyone who purchases one of Viva’s books during his in-store appearance will get 10% off their entire purchase! That’s right – buy A Trip to the Bottom of the World with Mouse and we’ll give you a deal on all of the comics in the shop! Bring your kids’ wish lists, and give the gift of comics!
And, be sure to keep your ears open for an interview with Geoffrey Hayes in mid-December on the Out of Bounds radio show! Full details to come.
