Max & Ruby at the Warthogs' Wedding

We have big news! HUGE!  The creator of the popular series, Max and Ruby, Rosemary Wells is COMING TO THE STORYBOOK SHOPPE!  We couldn't be more excited and more thrilled to host this accomplish author at our little store in Bluffton, South Carolina.  Today,  I am here to share with you all the details of her latest book, Max and Ruby at the Warhogs' Wedding.  The beautiful book is current, modern, fresh and has everything you love about the adorable characters, Max and Ruby. 

Once again, Max is up to his usual mischief with his gob smackers! He refuses to get dressed in his wedding attire and it's up to Ruby to dress him.  Then it's up to Max and Ruby to find the Chapel with Grandma's bunny phone (a fold out, lift-a-flap part of the book very reminiscent of an iPhone!)  They even have to follow a GPS-like map! But what will happen when the Warhogs' wedding ring gets lost? They'll chase it through the laundry, on the awning of the Ritz hotel, in the West Tower, the Conservatory, into the ballroom and the chapel! Will Max get to see the wedding? 

This story is an instant classic and I love how "current" the book is with technology references. I think Rosemary Wells is one of the first to adopt such technology effortlessly into the book. It doesn't seem forced, but a natural integration into her book. My daughter, Molly, one of the biggest Max and Ruby fans there is, gave this book a huge "thumbs up." 

I'd also like to note that the illustrations in this book are simply beautiful and depict the characters we have come to know and love so well.  Joyful Louise and Ruby whose friendship is one I just adore, is evident just by the way they are drawn.  The paper on which the book is printed is heavy weight cardstock and it just feels good as you turn the pages. It's such a keepsake book and a true treasure!  

We are so thrilled that this accomplished author will be joining us at The Storybook Shoppe on Friday, November 14th from 3:00 - 4:30 pm and can hardly believe how lucky we are to have her!  She will be signing purchased copies of this latest book, Max and Ruby at the Warthog Wedding and other Rosemary Wells books that we will have available for sale.
