GA – Tek: The Modern Cave Boy Signing

000000000000000_mcdonnell_tek

Patrick McDonnell (creator of Mutts) appears at the Athens-Clarke County Library on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 6:30 PM to sign his new book Tek: The Modern Cave Boy!

ABOUT ‘TEK’:
From a beloved, bestselling Caldecott Honor recipient comes a hilarious reminder of how technology can take us backward … all the way to the times of prehistoric man!

Tek is a cave boy in love with tech. His tablet, video games, phone, and TV keep him deep in his cave, glued to his devices, day in and day out. He never sees his friends or family, and his ability to communicate has devolved to just one word: “UGH”! Can anyone convince Tek to unplug and come outside into the big, beautiful world?

In addition to an imaginative and totally relatable story, ‘Tek’ also offers a distinctive design — including a tablet-shaped cover and a password “screen” — that’s sure to pique the interest of even the wariest young readers.

GA – Mighty Jack Signing

000000000000000_bhatke_mighty-jackBen Hatke (Zita the Spacegirl, Little Robot) appears at Avid Bookshop on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 6:30 PM!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer. But he’s got a good reason: summer is when his single mom takes a second job and leaves him at home to watch his autistic kid sister, Maddy. It’s a lot of responsibility, and it’s boring, too, because Maddy doesn’t talk. Ever. But then, one day at the flea market, Maddy does talk—to tell Jack to trade their mom’s car for a box of mysterious seeds. It’s the best mistake Jack has ever made.

In MIGHTY JACK, what starts as a normal little garden out back behind the house quickly grows up into a wild, magical jungle with tiny onion babies running amok, huge, pink pumpkins that bite, and, on one moonlit night that changes everything…a dragon.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Ben Hatke’s first graphic novel was ZITA THE SPACEGIRL. He has published comics stories in the Flight series as well as Flight Explorer. In addition to writing and drawing comics, he also paints in the naturalist tradition and, occasionally, performs one-man fire shows. Hatke lives and works in the Shenandoah Valley with his wife and their boisterous pack of daughters.
