A new book by Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen is a cause for celebration. And we WILL be celebrating when Chris Van Dusen, one of our favorite picture book author/illustrators, visits Kepler's on April 6.
Every porcine wonder was once a piglet - discover Mercy Watson’s delightful origin story in A Piglet Named Mercy. an endearing picture-book prequel to the beloved New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson series.
Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of many books for young readers, including The Circus Ship, If I Built a House, If I Built a Car, Down to the Sea with Mr Magee and Hattie & Hudson, and the illustrator of the Mercy Watson and Deckawoo Drive series.
Mr. Watson and Mrs. Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes their lives feel a bit too ordinary. Sometimes they wish something different would happen. And one day it does, when someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door. In a delightful origin story for the star of the Mercy Watson series, a tiny piglet brings love (and chaos) to Deckawoo Drive — and the Watsons’ lives will never be the same.
Join us and celebrate the joy of a new arrival by a longtime favorite author.
