Got Children?

South American adventures! Missing chickens! Sinister Lords of Death! A noir-style crime story! These are a few of the things being brought to the table with the next two children's authors coming to the Boulder Book Store.

The Trouble With Chickens brings us a story of a hard-boiled retired search-and-rescue dog J.J., who gets caught in the middle of a mystery involving two missing chicks on the farm. Bribed by a cheeseburger, J.J. decides to help Moosh, a mama hen desperate to find her chicks. Doreen Cronin is best known for her books Click Clack Moo and Diary of a Fly.

Jon and Pamela Voelkel are known for their amazing presentations around the nation with their best-selling series The Jaguar Stones. In the second installment, The End of the World Club, Max and Lola must defeat the Twelve Lords of Death in a race against the clock. To uncover the secret of the long-lost Yellow Jaguar, they must get away from Count Antonio de Landa eventually find their way to Xibalba, the Maya underworld. The dynamic duo brings their dried bugs, safari gear and the Maya King costume (great for photo opportunities, see below), transporting everyone in the audience to the deep South American jungle!

Doreen Cronin will read The Trouble With Chickens on March 9th, 2011 at 6:30 p.m., and Jon and Pamela Voelkel will speak on March 31st, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.
