Friends, Family, and Fellow Writers (or a mix of these), I'd love to see you this Saturday at the King's English Bookshop. Here are the details, straight from our press release:

Three Friends, Three Books

Rick Walton, Kristyn Crow, and Sharlee Glenn have been friends for years. When Kristyn and Sharlee were both fledgling writers, they turned to Rick, the granddaddy of picture book writing in Utah, for advice and encouragement. So when it turned out that all three writers had books coming out from national publishers within a few weeks of each other this year, they decided to join forces and celebrate by throwing a grand triple book release party.

The big event will take place this coming Saturday, May 3, from 11:00 to 1:00 at The King's English Bookshop at 1511 South 1500 East, Salt Lake City.

Rick Walton is the author of over sixty books for children, including Once There Was a Bull . . . Frog, So Many Bunnies, and Bertie was a Watch Dog. In this new book, What Do We do with the Baby (HarperCollins), readers of all ages will revel in a loving family's enjoyment of having a baby in the house.

Kristyn Crow is a first-time author, but not for long! Cool Daddy Rat (G. P. Putnam's Sons), is just the first of her three books. Bedtime at the Swamp (HarperCollins) will be released in July of this year, and The Middle Child Blues (G. P. Putnam's Sons) is scheduled for a fall of 2009 release. Cool Daddy Rat is a snappy read-aloud that has received starred reviews from
Publisher's Weekly and School Library Journal. It is full of energy from the jazzy text and animated illustrations, and will have kids snapping, tapping, and scatting along.

Sharlee Glenn, who was awarded the 2006 Dolly Gray Children's Literature Award for her book, Keeping Up with Roo (G. P. Putnam's Sons), will be celebrating the release of her fourth book on Saturday. In Just What Mama Needs (Harcourt), household chores are transformed into magical activities in a delightful Mother's Day book that showcases the days of the week and celebrates imaginative play, the mother-child relationship, and the joy of being just who we are.

All three authors will sign and read aloud from their books at Saturday's book release celebration at The King's English Bookshop. There will also be refreshments and activities.
