We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of Sharko and Hippo from our bookshop. If you do, we'll include a bookplate signed by the author for you to place in your book! It's our way of saying "thanks." Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come! 

Blue Willow Bookshop expects all participants to maintain an atmosphere of respect and fairness. Any comments or questions that violate this standard of behavior including any form of harassment, may, at the discretion of the organizers, be immediately removed.

With tongue-twisty wordplay and escalating absurdity, this is a fall-down-funny farce that will surprise and delight readers—from television comedy writer Elliott Kalan and acclaimed illustrator Andrea Tsurumi.

When Sharko calls for a boat, Hippo pulls out a goat.

He wants a pole, but Hippo gives him a pail.
