Larkspur Events

Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurDiesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes author Mac Barnett and illustrator Christian Robinson for a special story time reading of their new children's book Leo on Saturday, August 29th at 10:30 am.

Join author Mac Barnett and illustrator Christian Robinson under the white tent at the farmers' market to celebrate the launch of their new picture book Leo. Mac and Christian will read us the story, then we'll draw with pavement chalk together and play at being worthy knights.

Leo is the story of a friendly ghost who likes to draw and makes delicious snacks. But most people can't even see him. When a new family moves into his home and Leo's efforts to welcome them are misunderstood, Leo decides it is time to leave and see the world. That is how he meets Jane, a kid with a tremendous imagination and an open position for a worthy knight.

Award winning picture book creators Mac Barnett and Christian Robinson are two of the best young minds in kids books, enthusiastic and sometimes a bit silly. Don't miss this chance to meet these two local legends.

Mac Barnett is the author of several picture books, including Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem, Guess Again!, and Oh No!: Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World. He also writes the Brixton Brothers series of mysteries. Mac is the founder of the Echo Park Time Travel Mart, a convenience store for time travelers, and serves on the board of 826LA, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center.

Christian Robinson likes to stay indoors on rainy days and look out the window while drinking a big cup of hot cocoa. He has illustrated this book, as well as a few others, while staying indoors on rainy days. Christian lives in San Francisco, which has more fog than rain.
