Mac BarnettYes! THAT Mac Barnett! One of the winning-est authors in our Bay Area neck of the woods, or maybe even the entire country, (though the earth does seem to be tipping over a bit, so maybe it is just our side of the planet) - well, ANYWAY - this Caldecott-toting (he's got TWO of them), Hicklebee's Book of the Year-winning, huge heap-of-other-awards-garnering author, will be dropping by with his newest picture book, The Magic Word.

And the verdict of the reviewers?

“The stuff of kids’ wildest dreams” — Kirkus Reviews

“A subversive take on the topic of manners that still manages to deliver a message about human decency.” — The Horn Book

“[A] wild, relatable fantasy...This telling will resonate with (and tickle) the intended audience.” — Booklist

“Barnett’s narration hits all the right wry notes…while Parsley’s expressive, exaggerated drawings give the story the tight narrative arc, visual breeziness, and snappy comic rhythms.” — Publishers Weekly
