At McNally Jackson, we love Ame Dyckman! This Saturday, the dynamic Ame will have us laughing tears of joy, surprise, and hilarity as she reads from her fantastic books, including the new Misunderstood Shark. Ame's also going to help kids invent their own "misunderstood shark” and take home a shiver of shark treats. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
Ame Dyckman is the award-winning author of picture books Boy + Bot, Read the Book, Lemmings, The New York Times-bestselling Wolfie the Bunny, Horrible Bear!, and You Don't Want a Unicorn! Ame lives in central New Jersey with her family, and, of course, the characters from her stories. She's currently building a homemade swimming pool for the protagonist of her upcoming series, Misunderstood Shark -- mostly so she can have her bathtub back. Scott Magoon (illustrator of Misunderstood Shark) grew up in New England, and still lives in Boston with his family. He's an art director, designer, and illustrator, and he loves making books for kids. He's the illustrator of the bestselling Nuts series with author Eric Litwin; Spoon and Chopsticks, both written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal; and I Will Not Eat You by author Adam Lehrhaupt. He's also written and illustrated Breathe and The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot.
