We had our first snow around Thanksgiving this year. Since then, it has all disappeared leaving us with a mild New England winter so far. We’re hoping for a little bit for Christmas. But really, our Pacific Northwest souls don’t mind a milder winter.

Rex Wrecks It!

Ben’s newest book, Rex Wrecks it! came out this fall. Andover Books in Andover, MA was sweet enough to host a book reading and signing along with two other local authors, Paul Czajak and Dana Alison Levy. I really love how passionate the local book sellers are about their local authors and illustrators. There is such a great community based around independent book sellers.

A few weeks later, The Odyssey Book Shop in South Hadley, MA hosted another author event featuring Rex Wrecks It!. Hannah not only has an amazing bookstore and community, she is one of the most creative event hosts out there! She made a gigantic set of blocks for the children to build up and tear down after the book reading.
