I’ve been admiring the work of award winning children's author and illustrator, Bethanie Murguia, for a long time now. Next week, I'm giving away a copy of two of her beautifully illustrated books, "Cockatoo, Too," and "Violet and Victor Write the Most Fabulous Fairy Tale" to two lucky Ronnie's Awesome List subscribers.
"Cockatoo, Too" uses only the sounds in the words 'toucan' and 'cockatoo' to tell a simple story. It's beautifully illustrated and filled with wacky colorful dancing birds and clever wordplay. Out on shelves now to rave reviews. And don't miss the "Cockatoo, Too" Launch Party at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur on Saturday, January 9th at 11 am. Join Bethanie as she reads her latest story. Enjoy crafts, costumes, snacks, as well as an elementary ukulele band singalong, and a live cockatoo that will delight children!
The other book giveaway is Bethanie's illustrated picture book, "Violet and Victor Write the Most Fabulous Fairy Tale" due out January 19. You'll love the antics of twins, Violet and Victor, and their wild and creative imagination. Bethany's beautiful collages compliments their adventures in this fabulous fairytale. I have an advance autographed copy for one lucky Ronnie's Awesome List subscriber.
