Y'all know how much I love picture book art, right? Well, since you probably can't make it to Massachusetts to go to that picture book museum this weekend, we're going to bring a picture book art gallery right here to the store! This Saturday & Sunday, July 24th & 25th, the U District store is hosting a gallery event with Picture Book Originals. We'll have original artwork and giclee prints available to purchase from some of the top-of-the-heap children's book artists: Rosemary Wells, Jez Alborough, Peter Reynolds, and more. We'll have the artists' books in stock as well, so stop by the second floor to check out their work and pick up a print to match your favorite book. We cannot wait to welcome you to our mini-gallery for the weekend.

P.S. Stop by the Kids Desk anytime this week to see a big print of Rosemary Wells's Yoko- adorable!
