Larkspur Events

Bethanie Deeney Murguia at Diesel A Bookstore in Larkspur

DIESEL, A Bookstore is proud to welcome Bethanie Deeney Murguia to the store on Saturday January 9th at 11am for a Launch Party for her new picture book Cockatoo, Too.

And what a party it will be! There will be can-can dancing, dress-up tutus, a ukulele band, crafts, snacks and a live trained cockatoo in the store. And of course local author and illustrator Bethanie Deeney Murguia will read her book aloud and tell us about how she makes a book. It promises to be an amazing morning at DIESEL, we hope we'll see you there with kids ages two and up.

Don't miss the pre-order special for Cockatoo, Too! The first 20 preorders—that means orders received between NOW and January 5th—will received a signed (and personalized if you choose) copy of the book along with a Cockatoo, Too notepad and a Cockatoo, Too zipper pull. If you don’t live nearby but would like a signed book, this is a great way to make that happen...and support a wonderful independent business. Plus, as a final bonus, one pre-order will be chosen at random to receive a 5 x 7 signed ORIGINAL cockatoo painting by Bethanie.

Two cockatoos meet two more cockatoos in tutus and two tutued toucans. And then two more! Can they all can-can? They can! The cockatoos and toucans join together for a dance and ask the reader: "Can you can-can too?" Bethanie Deeney Murguia's fabulous book combines fantastically funny wordplay with lush, vibrant illustrations that will make readers want to can-can along!

Bethanie Deeney Murguia is the author and illustrator of Zoe Gets Ready,Buglette, The Messy Sleeper, and Snippet the Early Riser. She lives with her family in Sausalito, California.
