May-3-A-Flying-Pig-Muth-SThe Flying Pig Bookstore welcomes multiple-award-winning, Caldecott Honor artist Jon Muth (“The Three Questions,” “Zen Ties,” “Zen Shorts,” “Zen Ghosts,” “City Dog, Country Frog,” and many more) to Shelburne Town Hall on Tuesday, May 13 at 4pm.

Muth will celebrate the publication of his newest book, “Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons,” a collection of 26 small poems in a journey through the alphabet, celebrating moments throughout the year and the sweet joys of friendship and nature.

In addition to books he has authored, Muth has illustrated many well-known books by other authors, including Douglas Wood’s “Old Turtle” series, Karen Hesse’s “Come On, Rain!,” and Caroline Kennedy’s “Poems to Learn by Heart.”

The public is invited to this free celebration at the Shelburne Town Hall, where Muth will chat with the audience, read “Hi, Koo!,” and autograph copies of any of his books purchased at the event. All of Muth’s books in print will be available. The Flying Pig Bookstore can also arrange autographed, personalized books for people who cannot attend the event. Everyone who purchases a copy of Muth’s latest book “Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons” will receive a special 2×2-inch poster of an illustration from the book while supplies last.
