“If the paintings are the feast, Stockdale’s words are the dessert.” -The Washington Post
Line up for author/illustrator Susan Stockdale’s presentation of her new picture book, Line Up! Animals in Remarkable Rows. Susan will read and briefly demonstrate how she researched, wrote and illustrated her book in a visual presentation, perfect for the whole family. Attendees will learn how and why animals around the world line up, just as children do at school regularly! A book signing will follow. Extra bonuses: a FREE raffle will be held for a signed, full-color giclee print of one of Susan’s beautiful book paintings, and children will leave with line art of a Line Up! book illustration to color at home.
