MAC BARNETT will be at Charlie’s Corner Children’s Bookstore on Saturday, June 15th at 12:30pm to read his new book, The Important Thing About Margaret Wise Brown.

What is important about Margaret Wise Brown?

In 42 inspired pages, this biography by award-winning writer Mac Barnett vividly depicts one of the greatest children’s book creators who ever lived: Margaret Wise Brown, the author of Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and The Little Fur Family.

The way this text plays with form and echoes the language of some of Margaret’s classics (like The Important Book) is truly awe-inspiring. Reviewers and librarians are going to feast on the delights of this book. It’s like nothing else out there and it’s a lively read-aloud as well.

Illustrated with sumptuous art by rising star Sarah Jacoby, this is an essential book for children’s book lovers of every age.

MAC BARNETT is a New York Times bestselling author whose books have been translated into more than thirty languages. His picture books include two Caldecott-Honor-winning collaborations with Jon Klassen: Sam & Dave Dig a Hole and Extra Yarn.
