Special Event for Kids

Katherine Applegate is the author of The One and Only Ivan, winner of the Newbery Medal.

Crenshaw spent over twenty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and her first middle-grade stand-alone, Home of the Brave, continues on state reading lists, summer reading lists, and class reading lists.  Katherine Applegate lives in Tiburon, California, with her family.

Wishtree
Trees can’t tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories…  Red is an oak tree who is many rings old.  Red is the neighborhood “wishtree”—people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red’s branches.  Along with a crow named Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red’s hollows, this wishtree watches over the neighborhood.  You might say Red has seen it all.  Until a new family moves in.  Not everyone is welcoming, and Red’s experience as a wishtree is more important than ever.

Endling #1: The Last
Byx is the youngest member of her dairne pack.  Believed to possess remarkable abilities, her mythical doglike species has been hunted to near extinction in the war-torn kingdom of Nedarra.  After her pack is hunted down and slaughtered, Byx fears she may be the last of her species: the endling.  As Byx sets out to find safe haven—and perhaps even another of her kind—she meets new allies, who have their own motivations for joining her quest.  Together this ragtag group of animals and humans will help put into motion events that could bring the kingdom to the brink of war.

Sometimes You Fly
This gorgeous gift book, equally perfect for preschool graduations or college commencements, baby showers or birthdays, is an inspirational tribute to the universal struggles and achievements of childhood.  Beginning with a first birthday, the scenes travel through childhood triumphs and milestones, coming full circle to graduation.  A magical blend of succinct text and beautiful watercolors renders each moment with tenderness and humor and encourages readers to “remember then, with every try, sometimes you fail…sometimes you fly.”

Presented in conjunction with the Journal of Alta California
