Well the launch for Humphrey's First Palm Sunday at Mrs. Figs' Bookworm was a HUGE success. Connie Halpern, Mrs. Figs, was amazing and the day was fun and exciting. The first count is in for copies of Humphrey sold for the debut at 136. I'll put out a notice when the final count is tallied, but that is spectacular! Below are some photos taken on the day by Siri Weber Feeney.
I was excited and honored to see this new article by ANN CANNON in the THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE: Ann Cannon: A Holiday Tradtition Worth Reading About. She picked HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS as one of her five favorite books!! Here is the paragraph that mentions her favorites!
"Over the years, a few clear personal favorites have emerged: The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden, A Letter to Santa Claus by Rose Impey and Sue Porter, Wombat Divine by Mem Fox, The Little Fir Tree by Margaret Wise Brown and HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS by Carol Heyer."
I also wanted to mention when HUMPHREY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS was originally launched ANN CANNON picked it as one of the new books she would add to her ever growing collection! Of course here's my favorite line from the article! :0)
"And I'm not sure I can't resist the divinely silly "Humphrey's First Christmas" by Carol Heyer — a story about a camel's journey to the stable and the surprise he finds waiting there.
I'm a writer/illustrator of children's books and fantasy! Love my family, friends, goofy camels, and nutty dogs.
