Princeton Children's Book Festival

Every year, librarian Allison Santos transforms the area just outside of the Princeton Public Library into a madhouse of literacy with a hundred or so authors. There were thousands of readers there just devouring books. Perhaps Santos means "saint"? Either way, if you live within driving distance of the Princeton, NJ, make sure that you get to the Princeton Children's Book Festival. I was honored to be there—and beyond honored to have created the artwork for this year's poster. Thank you to the staff and volunteers for making it all happen! And thank you to all of the readers who made me feel so loved!

I had the best assistant, but it was difficult to spot her with how high the books were stacked up! My kiddo was a champion today, sitting patiently and helping during the five-hour long festivities.

My daughter was also asked to sign books that other authors had dedicated to her.
