    Sat, 19 Oct 2019 09:00:00 Permalink
    The animals wander out in the morning and find a snowman but they don't know what he is.  They see a pile of snow with weird things on him...Dial Books and Edelweiss shared a copy of this book with me (thank you).  It will be published November 5th.They think the top hat is a tall rowboat; the carrot nose is a rare dragon’s tooth; and the mittens are fish puppets.  They gather up his accessories and head back home with them.  They are very inventive with what they've taken.  The tall rowboat makes a perfect table; the rare dragon’s tooth Read More

    Philip Pullman, Impassioned Storyteller for All Ages

    Sat, 19 Oct 2019 08:00:00 Permalink
    Author Philip Pullman is a master of modern children's literature. His trilogy, His Dark Materials, is one of the most beloved fantasy series of the last twenty five years, although Pullman himself considers the books "stark realism" not fantasy. Writing for children, Pullman believes, enables him to engage his readers in ways he would otherwise be prohibited - he revels in intricate plots and characters. He has won the Carnegie Medal (1995), Guardian Prize (1996), and Astrid Lindgren Award (2005). And recently, HBO announced the air date for its upcoming series based on His Dark Materials. Fans of Pullman's stories don't have to Read More

    The Best Little Book Fair Ever

    Mon, 14 Oct 2019 05:13:34 Permalink
    Downtown Seattle from the roof deck of the Mediterranean HotelOkay, let’s get this out of the way right at the top… The Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair is the best provincial book show in America.Brooklyn comes in second, but it doesn’t have the legacy, or the depth of collectors, bibliophiles, and institutional librarians that Seattle does. Florida rounds out the top three, though from what I hear, Brad and Jen Johnson’s LA show might soon be presenting a challenge.Continue reading The Best Little Book Fair Ever at Ten Pound Island Book Company.

    Four Book Fairs in Five Weeks - 14 March 2017

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
