Mark your calendar! Jan Brett is coming back to Bellingham and this time, she is presenting her latest book, The Snowy Nap. This is the prequel to the all-time classic and bestseller, The Hat.

The Snowy Nap stars Hedgie, Brett’s trademark character. Inspired by his friends’ tales of their marvelous past winter adventures, he is determined not to sleep through all the fun again. Hedgie is dazzled by seeing the icy chicken coop sparkling like a palace, the frozen pond shining like a mirror, and the tinkling of sleigh bells. Readers will delight in Brett’s return to the Danish farm on the island of Funen. And Readers will be charmed by her meticulous and detailed illustrations, from the local houses with thatched roofs to the beautiful birch bark flourishes on every page. 

With over 42 million books in print, Jan Brett's’s exquisite art is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. For over 30 years she has brought the glories of winter to millions of youngsters, their teachers, and parents.  Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up.   During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

Tickets are $5.00 and are available at Village Books and on brownpapertickets.com. Each ticket is a $5 voucher towards the purchase of The Snowy Nap. Kids six and under are free!
