This one’s very family-friendly. Chris Van Allsburg discusses his new book, The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie. Van Allsburg has picked up two Caldecott Awards for picture book illustration for 1981’s Jumanji and 1985’s The Polar Express. Van Allsburg penned both, too — and both were each turned into big-budget Hollywood flicks with varying degrees of success. After the talk, KIDS INK hosts sales of the book complete with an autograph session.
