On Sunday, January 22 at 10:30 AM, Emily Jenkins will continue her tour promoting A GREYHOUND, A GROUNDHOG at Stories Bookshop + Storytelling Lab in Brooklyn, New York.
A GREYHOUND, A GROUNDHOG, which hit shelves earlier this month, received 5 stars from Shelf Awareness and has received glowing reviews for its heartwarming story and fun beat when read aloud. The School Library Journal raved in a starred review, “This delightful story is a feast for the eyes and ears, and it will hold up well to repeated demands from eager young listeners.”
Besides quickly becoming a new favorite for storytime, A GREYHOUND, A GROUNDHOG has also been recognized for its stunning and adorable watercolor artwork by illustrator Chris Appelhans (Sparky), the 2014 Children’s Choice Illustrator of the Year.
With A GREYHOUND, A GROUNDHOG, Jenkins adds to an impressive backlist of hits, including the picture book TOY MEETS SNOW, a New York Times Notable Book and a Wall Street Journal Best Children’s Book of the Year. She has also written award-winning chapter books featuring the same beloved characters from TOYS GO OUT, TOY DANCE PARTY, and TOYS COME HOME.
