Judy's Skippyjon Jones picture books are beloved. Now she's launching her new book, Dewey Bob. A sweet raccoon character stars in this endearing tale of unexpected friendship.
Dewey Bob Crockett is a durn cute raccoon who lives by himself in a house filled to the brim with the wonderful objects he collects. Buttons, wheels, furniture and bricabrac adorn his cozy quarters and keep him busy as he finds and fixes, turning trash into treasures. But there’s something missing from Dewey’s collections—a friend! He tries gathering up some critters and bringing them home in his shopping cart, but that doesn’t work out so well. In the end, a friend does come Dewey’s way, and, with a little DIY help from this clever raccoon, returns again and again.
Combining art and heart with storytelling genius and a lilting twang, Judy Schachner's tale of unexpected friendship will delight readers young and old.
Judy will be at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre September 20, at 1 pm signing books and taking photos with fans! This is a ticketed event. Tickets will be on sale at BookPeople of Moscow starting Tuesday, Sept. 8, the same day that "Dewey Bob" is released for sale! Adults $5 each, children $1 each. Tickets will only be available at BookPeople of Moscow, NOT at the Kenworthy door or box office. We recommend pre-ordering any of the author's books, including Skippyjon Jones titles, that you'd like to have signed at the event, to avoid waiting in a long line to purchase books at the event. We can accept orders via this website, over the phone, or in the store. Thank you!
