Acclaimed childrens book author/illustrator Andrea Zuill will be at The Book Catapult on Saturday, March 30 at 11:00am for a storytime & booksigning of her new book, Sweety.
Sweety is awkward, even for a naked mole rat. She has protruding front teeth, thick glasses, and some very unusual hobbies, including interpretive dance and fungus identification. She's intense and passionate - and her peers don't always get her. But surely there are other mushroom lovers out there? As Sweety sets out to find them, she comes to realize - with a little help from her cool Aunt Ruth - that being Sweety is actually pretty awesome. With heart and humor and a whole lot of charm, Andrea Zuill delivers a story about learning to embrace everything that makes you you - and that's something many kids are going to relate to.
Andrea Zuill is the author-illustrator of Wolf Camp, a finalist for the Children's Choice Award, as well as the acclaimed Business Pig.
