Ame Dyckman, You Don't Want a Unicorn! and Scott Campbell, OX OX

Join children's book author Ame Dyckman and illustrator Scott Campbell for a talk and signing. Part of Short Stories Independent Bookstore Day celebration! 

Ame Dyckman is short, loud, mischievous, and often dresses like her book characters. She’s also the award-winning, internationally-translated author of the fantastically illustrated (THANKS, illustrators!) picture books BOY + BOT, TEA PARTY RULES, the New York Times bestselling WOLFIE THE BUNNY, HORRIBLE BEAR!, YOU DON’T WANT A UNICORN! and more picture books and board books in the works! Ame lives in central New Jersey with her family, ridiculously big-eared cat, book collection, closet full of hair dye colors, and of course, the characters from her stories. (For reals! She’s currently building a homemade swimming pool for the protagonist of her upcoming series, MISUNDERSTOOD SHARK—mostly so she can have her bathtub back.)
