Mark Teague is coming to town!

From Secret Garden Books in Ballard:
Mark Teague has delighted young readers with his illustrations in more than 20 picture books, and he has written many of them himself, including the popular Pigsty, Baby Tamer, and One Halloween Night. He is also the illustrator of Cynthia Rylant's beloved Poppleton series for beginning readers, and Jane Yolen’s How Do Dinosaurs... series of picture books.
In LaRue Across America, Ike's plans for a peaceful cruise with Mrs. LaRue are thwarted when their neighbor, Mrs. Hibbins, falls suddenly ill from heat stroke. Mrs. LaRue suggests that she and Ike care for her cats while Mrs. Hibbins is in the hospital, inviting them along on the cruise. But cats aren't allowed, and Mrs. LaRue decides to take them all on a week's vacation of road-tripping.
Join Mark Teague on this wonderful romp of a road trip across America's immediately recognizable tourist destinations. Teague masterfully drives us to the story's very satisfying ending through his hilarious text and slyly smart paintings.The author will read us his story and show us an illustration demo. He will also sign books available for sale at the event. Free.
When: Tuesday, February 15th, at 7:00 p.m. 
Where: Secret Garden Books2214 NW Market St, Seattle, WA
