New Book

New Book: Miranda and Maude!

Have you seen this adorable duo, yet? Miranda and Maude are at it again, this time working on a school play. While they navigate performance and stage fright, they also find cause to battle for non-styrofoam lunch trays and the most worthy cause of all, love. Great for ages 7-10.

Kirkus calls this one “a delightful read!” We couldn’t agree more. Congrats to Emma Wunsch and the princessy and not-so-princessy duo!

Marty Kelley Gets Famous

Dr. Carla Hayden reading Santa’s Underwear: A Visit from Saint Nicholas by Marty Rhodes Figley and Illustrated by Marty Kelley

The coolest thing happened! Dr. Carla Hayden, the librarian of congress, continued the tradition of reading children a holiday story in the Thomas Jefferson Building’s Great Hall. This year, she read a few books to commemorate the winter holidays. One was very familiar to us! Santa’s Underwear: A Visit from Saint Nicholas by Marty Rhodes Figley and illustrated by our own Marty Kelley. Go Marty! You’re so famous! Read more about the event and its history here.
