Rosemary Wells, Max & Ruby’s Treasure Hunt
A not-to-be-missed event!Renowned Children’s Book Author & IllustratorROSEMARY WELLS“There are a few picture books—a precious few—that every child should own, Goodnight Moon, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Where the Wild Things Are. In six years of reviewing children’s books, I’ve seen and enjoyed some extraordinary work, but few real candidates to this Hall of Fame. Except maybe this one: Voyage to the Bunny Planet, by Rosemary Wells.” —Carol Doup Miller, San Jose Mercury News When renowned children's book author and illustrator Rosemary Wells heard that Bookshop Santa Cruz had sold their thousandth copy of Voyage to a Bunny Planet, she wanted to come help us celebrate. Join us for a reading and booksigning for her newest title, Max & Ruby’s Treasure Hunt. This special event will also feature a treasure hunt for kids and Max (in costume) on hand for photo ops.In this newest Max & Ruby book, young readers can follow clues to a treasure hunt and find the treasure with Max and Ruby! When a thunderstorm ruins the picnic that Max and Ruby and their friends, Louise and Lily, had planned, the four friends suddenly have nothing to do. But Grandma saves the day with an ingenious treasure hunt. The clues are Mother Goose rhymes and jump-rope rhymes, and a missing word in each one leads the bunnies to the next clue, until they reach the prize, a treasure chest of gold-foil-wrapped chocolate coins. This interactive picture book with lift-the-flap clues will keep fans of the bunny siblings entertained for many readings. We have been fans of the extraordinary Rosemary Wells for many, many years, and are delighted to welcome her to Bookshop for a special event that kids are sure to enjoy!
