Kevin Henkes at Secret Garden Bookshop
The bookstore sent word that one of our all time picture book heroes is swinging through Seattle, and we're having an event with him at the shop for the first time in years. Kevin Henkes was awarded the Caldecott Medal for Kitten's First Full Moon. He is the creator of several picture books featuring his mouse characters, including the No. 1 New York Times bestsellers Lilly's Big Day and Wemberly Worried, the Caldecott Honor Book Owen, and the beloved Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. He also writes for older children. His novels include Bird Lake Moon, and the Newbery Honor Book Olive's Ocean.
