Ryan Higgins - 'Bruce's Big Move' & Greg Pizzoli - 'The 12 Days of Christmas'

This morning just keeps getting better. It’s now a double author-illustrator extravaganza!

Our childen's department has a soft spot for curmudgeonly bears. Have you met Bruce - arguably the most lovable grump in the children's world since Oscar the Grouch?  Mother Bruce was nominated for the NC Children's Choice Award for favorite picture book, received the E. B. White Read-Aloud Award and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor, so we know many kids have discovered him.  Bruce's adventures with 'his' goslings continued with Hotel Bruce.  Now the pack hits the road as Bruce seeks peace in Bruce's Big Move.  Ryan Higgins (left) shares Bruce's latest outing with us on Saturday, October 7, at 10 am.  No offense, Bruce, but we hope you're kept rattled for years to come.  Ages 4+, and bear cubs and goslings of all ages. 

Kids (and Greg Pizzoli) know how silly the classic Christmas carol is. Giggles are guaranteed in this slapstick version of The 12 Days of Christmas, from the award-winning creator of The Watermelon SeedSeed received the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award. Among his many books, Greg is also the author of Good Night Owl, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor book. Ages 4+.

Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he's their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can't seem to rid himself of his new companions. What's a bear to do?
