Join Porter Square Books for the launch of local author/illustrator E. B. Goodale's newest book, Under the Lilacs!
From Ezra Jack Keats Honor winner E. B. Goodale comes a celebration of nature, family, and building our own hands-on adventures—perfect for any reader who has ever craved a bit of independence . . .
In this lush and playful picture book from E. B. Goodale, illustrator of Windows, Kate feels ignored by her mother and sister and so decides to run away. In a neighboring yard, she builds a fort and enjoys a sense of independence—until she finds herself making room for her family in her new home . . . Under the Lilacs is the perfect celebration of striking out on your own—while still making room for everyone.
"[A] truly attractive mélange that evinces early spring days, green fields, and blue skies swept with clouds. After reading this book, who wouldn't want to try their own hand at a little independence?"—Kirkus
E. B. Goodale is the illustrator of Windows and Here and Now, written by Julia Denos, A Most Unusual Day, written by Sydra Mallery, and Richard Jackson's forthcoming A Kiss for Akaraka.
