Fuddles and Puddles booksigning with creator Frans Vischer Saturday, 10/1 at 4 pm
Our favorite feline (after our own Pippi) is FUDDLES, the fat and pampered cat creation of local animator-extraordinare Frans Vischer. We have met Fuddles getting into much trouble, trying to go on adventures, and ending up, as always, in the loving arms of his adoring family. Now, he has to deal with a new family member ----a rambunctious puppy named PUDDLES! Things are going to get very interesting in this house!!! Join us as Frans delights us with his sketching, tales of the REALLIFE Fuddles, and how he gets his madcap ideas. This picture book book signing is best for ages 3+.

Sophronia Angelina Temminnick spends her days running around on adventures in her family’s Victorian country home in a very un-ladylike manner. So to prepare her to enter society as she becomes a young woman, her family enrolls her into Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. But the school isn’t what Sophronia expects… firstly, it’s not in any sort of building but a giant, floating dirigible! Although she and her new classmates do learn dance, dress, and etiquette, she soon realizes that the school is also an academy to use feminine guiles for more sinister aims like espionage, manipulation, and even assassination! Sophronia’s lessons at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s include learning how to poison with proper tea service and the ins and outs of the aristocracy from a Vampire. With the author’s dry humor and wit, this series both celebrates and satirizes the steam punk world. An exciting, saucy, and hilarious read! - Linnea
