Happy Birthday Annika!


Our reluctant bookstore cat Annika is turning seven this month!  Annika has been at the store for three years now, and she is an irreplaceable part of our bookstore family.

To celebrate her birthday, we are holding a special party just for her.  There will be games, prizes, and of course cake!  We can’t guarantee Annika will make an appearance for everybody as she is the reluctant bookstore cat, but she will definitely get plenty of treats if nothing else on her special day.

We are also releasing The Very, Very Bad Misadventures of Annika the Reluctant Bookstore Cat on the day of her birthday party.  Annika’s book is an anthology of thirteen stories (plus one bonus story) all about Annika.  Most of the authors of the stories will be joining us to sign the books, and of course we will have a special stamp of her paw made so she can sign as well.

We hope you will join us to celebrate Annika on her special day!

 Michelle’s Monthly Book Recommendations 


The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman


This is a delightful tale for children and adults.  A toddler’s family is killed and he wanders into the graveyard.  The inhabitants protect and raise the tyke.  He learns about the worlds of the living and the dead.  This fantastic story tugs at the heartstrings and incites the imagination.
