Rosemary WellsRosemary Wells, the creator of many unforgettable children's book characters, including Max and Ruby, McDuff, and Yoko, is coming to Hicklebee's for a reading event of her new book Kit and Kaboodle.

In the spirit of Max and Ruby, Wells' preschool picture book series features brother-and-sister twin cat duo Kit and Kaboodle, and the mischievous mouse Spinka! The book is an excellent entry point to talking about feelings and emotional intelligence in a preschool setting. The sweet and appealing characters are drawn in Rosemary's classic, enchanting look. You won't want to miss the opportunity to meet this beloved illustrator and childhood legend.

Rosemary Wells' career as an author and illustrator spans more than thirty years and 120 books, including Hand in Hand, Ten Kisses for Sophie, Voyage to the Bunny Planet, and Max's & Ruby's Bedtime Book. Browse the rest of her books here.

She started putting in her ten thousand hours to be an artist at the age of two and cranked up at least three hours very night of her young life, drawing, copying, learning and drawing more. In her young life, she was disappointed not to become the first female major league baseball player, and also disappointed not to have a career as a FBI agent, so she turned to writing and illustration and has never looked back. She has two daughters and five granddaughters. They are the source of many a book to come.

There are three short stories in this picture book: Sock Mischief, Baseball Mischief, Bath Time Mischief.

"This evocative picture book makes an absorbing read-aloud choice for young children. Something new from the creator of Max and Ruby, and countless other beloved stories, is sure to be in demand." —Booklist, starred review
