Launch of: An Armadillo in Paris

What a lovely launch for An Armadillo in Paris! The event was held on Wednesday, November 5 at Café Plenty with Mabel’s Fables on hand to sell books. A fantastic turnout of friends, families, and fans came to congratulate Julie Kraulis on her second picture book publication. Here are some photos from the reception:
01_LaunchArloParisYes, a knitted armadillo was present at the launch. With an interchangeable scarf, wonder what the colours will be for Arlo’s next adventure in New York City?
02_LaunchArloParisJulie brought in the original art to display so everyone could see the amazing details in her work.
03_LaunchArloParisA Parisian-themed launch wouldn’t be complete with some treats, especially macarons!
04_LaunchArloParisGreat to see the support and love from friends and family! But … were they there to see Julie or Arlo?
05_LaunchArloParisEditor Samantha Swenson (right) saying a few words, she’s also the one who knitted the armadillo!
06_LaunchArloParisSo many kids came by to get their books signed!
