Amid the crazy crowds in the Square today for Oktoberfest, we had a surprise illustrator visitor! Scott Magoon, the artist behind Spoon (written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal) and Otto Grows Down (written by Michael Sussman), stopped in to chat and sign a few books for us.
We chatted about my fervent desire for a sequel about the lonely-looking spork who appears in the Spoon family portrait, and also about an actual companion book in the works about Spoon's friends the Chopsticks. Look for that one in 2011!
It's such a pleasure when talented (not to mention handsome and charming) folk stop by our store. Thanks for visiting and setting our hearts a-flutter, Scott!
