Chris Van Allsburg arrives at Book Beat. Welcome Mr. Van Allsburg.
Chris Van Allsburg, a Michigan native writes and illustrates children’s books. He has won two Caldecott Medals. Adults and children love his books. Some of the best known are Two Bad Ants, The Polar Express, and Jumanji. Here’s a quote from his website: “The idea of the extraordinary happening in the context of the ordinary is what fascinates me.”
The author patiently signs books.
The crowd patiently waits to have books signed.
Owners and staff are always ready to help book searchers.
I’m glad he visited. Filled with joy to be back at Book Beat and meeting Mr. Van Allsburg again.
