Merrilees Brown
Caspian Finds a Friend

We are excited to welcome Merrilees Brown, illustrator of the new picture book Caspian Finds a Friend, to Children’s Book World! The illustrations are so beautiful, and we can’t wait to meet her! Caspian lives in a lighthouse with no one around and every day he wishes for a friend. Then one day he realizes just wishing isn’t enough. This, her first picture book, is an imaginative story about how the power to change our world lies within ourselves.

If you are stuck in your own lighthouse and can’t join us, use the buttons below to order your copy!

The Space Walk
Launch Party with Astronaut & Alien Costume Party!

Astronaut Randolph Witherspoon wants to take a walk…a space walk, that is! But Ground Control gives orders parents and kids will recognize: first he must eat some lunch, get some exercise… and on and on! When he finally gets out, he meets a surprising new friend! We love how Brian Biggs has taken the way parents and children interact and blasted it into space! Join us for a special Astronaut & Alien Costume Party to celebrate the launch of this hilarious new picture book!

Take the time to view this super-fun trailer for The Space Walk!
