Another November, another Buckeye Book Fair and, as always, a fantastic time!
The weather was warm and sunny, bringing many book lovers out to meet their favorite authors, shop for holiday gifts and enjoy the general good vibrations created by this eclectic bunch of affable, generous and inspiring writers and illustrators.
Featured at my table was “Charlie Piechart and the Case of the Missing Hat”, the second book in a series of math-based mysteries with fellow author and illustrator, Eric Comstock.
This new Charlie Piechart mystery teaches children about shapes, as Charlie sets out with his dog, Watson, to find a missing princess hat in the shape of…you guessed it… a cone!
Most fun of all, however, was meeting my little fans… like Cassandra, a bright, adorably funny little sweetheart. Possessing great warmth and charm, she could easily be the main character in a series of children’s books. Something to think about...
And what would a Buckeye Book Fair be without Tim Bowers wearing a bag of M & M’s on his head? Not as much fun, that’s for sure. If you can’t get enough of Tim’s silliness, then visit his website for information on his newest illustrated book authored by Kenny Loggins and titled “Footloose.” It’s a treasure.
I also had the pleasure of sharing a table with Robert Roman, the author of “Ohio State Football: The Forgotten Dawn”, the fascinating, untold story of the early days of football at Ohio State University.
