We're thrilled to welcome two stars of the children's book firmament: the award-winning, über-talented team of Bob Shea (author) and Zachariah Ohora (illustrator) for the launch of Who Wet My Pants? (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). In Who Wet My Pants?, Bob creates a "hilarious tale of blame, compassion, and mercy, featuring a very embarrassed bear who is reminded that accidents can happen, but with the support of good friends, life goes on. A laugh-out-loud whodunit, this book is not about the crime . . . it’s about the cover-up." Bob and Zachariah will read, create art, sign their new book and previous works as well. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. All ages welcome. Free.
BOB SHEA is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including Crash, Splash, or Moo!, Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great, the popular Dinosaur Vs. series, and the early readers featuring Ballet Cat. He’s also written stories such as Big Plans, illustrated by Lane Smith, and drawn the pictures for books like Love, Triangle by Marcie Colleen. In elementary school, Bob made his best friend laugh so hard that he wet his pants, a comedic achievement that has since proven elusive. He lives in Madison, Connecticut, but prefers that you visit him at www.bobshea.com.
ZACHARIAH OHORA admits he might have wet his pants a little while laughing at this silly story. He is the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling book Wolfie the Bunny and two other popular books written by Ame Dyckman, Horrible Bear! and Read the Book, Lemmings! He is also the creator of a number of award-winning books, including My Cousin Momo, a Boston Globe Best Children’s Book and Pennsylvania One Book selection. His author-illustrator debut Stop Snoring, Bernard! was awarded the Society of Illustrators Founder’s Award, and his book No Fits Nilson! was the Huffington Post Best Picture Book of the Year for 2013. He lives in Narbeth, Pennsylvania, and invites you to visit him at www.zohora.com.
