We're delighted to welcome bestselling authors Suzanne Selfors and Kevan Atteberry to Island Books! They're throwing a pajama party to celebrate Suzanne's Wish Upon a Sleepover, her new middle grade novel about a group of misfits who find true friendship where they least expect it, and Kevan's I Love You More Than the Smell of Swamp Gas, a monstrously tender and silly tale guaranteed to elicit lots of giggles and monster hugs.
Wear your pajamas and slippers and get ready for some fun!
A Bainbridge Island native, Suzanne is the author of more than 30 children's books, including the Wedgie & Gizmo, Ever After High, Imaginary Veterinary and Smells Like Dog series. Her books have earned a number of honors, including the Washington State Book Award in 2014 for The Sasquatch Escape, and five Junior Library Guild Awards. Suzanne is a board member of Seattle7Writers, a group dedicated to boosting literacy and writing around the Pacific Northwest. She and her husband have two children.
Kevan Atteberry knew he wanted to make picture books ever since he ate his first crayon. Which is not advised. Nearly all of the books he has written and/or illustrated are about monsters. We don’t know why. But he keeps doing it. He has become something of a monster documentarian. His books include I Love You More Than the Smell of Swamp Gas as well as Bunnies!!! and Puddles!!!
