|Georgia Picturebook Award Winner for 2016!|
Here's a link to a page with more information, including how to pronounce his name! (It's ba DREE key)
He is amazing. He's illustrated for other authors and done many books himself including his Ace Lacewing, Bug Detective series; his Santa series; his Dragon series; and his new Bear Alert series his working on.
I've read at least some of his books to most of the K-2 classes and mentioned his visit to every class I can.
I'll send a link to an order form to all the teachers if you'd like them to print one out for you. He'll bring paperbacks of many of his books, available for only $8 each and I'm sure he'll be happy to sign them!
Not everyone at Starling will fit in the Media Center at once so we will be having four presentations and streaming it live to the classrooms as well so everyone will have a chance to see him! [edit: And now all of his presentations will be available on our Youtube channel until school is out.]
