Book Launch & Arts Donation - TINA KUGLER - "The Change Your Name Store" - Sat. May 10th at 4pm
llustrator Tina Kügler draws and paints digitally and works very
hard to make it look like she is not using a computer at all. Before
becoming a children’s book illustrator, she spent ten years drawing
storyboards in the animation industry for studios such as Walt Disney,
Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros, owned a children's bookshop in Wisconsin, and worked at a library. Tina’s debut picture book is The Change Your Name Store, written by Leanne Shirtliffe (Sky Pony). Her next book, In Mary’s Garden,
with husband Carson Kügler, comes out May 2015 with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Tina lives in La Crescenta with her husband, three boys and an enormous hairy dog (named Harry). She is also a Cub Scout leader and has little to no spare time. Visit Tina at www.tinakuglerstudio.com.
The best kids' book I read in the last year! Funny and heart-tugging. Spunky and inventive Gertie is determined to win her mother's admiration to keep her from moving away, but her plans keep going awary in funny ways. "The bullfrog was only half-dead, which was perfect."
