Henny spreads her wings, er, arms....

A delightful dispatch from Elizabeth Rose Stanton, author of the picture book Henny:
The setting!

Henny and I had a great time this past weekend at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA. I am so honored to have been asked to read Henny for Storytime, and we sure had fun! We had lots of chicken-talk with the kids, and a book signing. It was a thrill to see Henny in the bookshop! 
The sitting––for Story Time!
People just couldn't have been nicer. Speaking of nice people––two of my favorites showed up. Our own Ben Clanton and his wife, Kelsey, drove over from their new home in Andover, MA to cheer Henny on. Ben got into the spirit of things, as you can see....
The sighting! Kelsey, Elizabeth, and Ben.
It was a magical, wonderful time, in a magical wonderful place!  As Henny herself would say, "Bwwaaak!"
The signing!
