DEBBIE'S SEA MONKEY & BOB BOOK TOUR REPORT

 

(Last updated: May 10, 2017)

I had SUCH an amazing time talking to schools and at bookstores in North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Mississippi about SEA MONKEY & BOB! Thanks to Simon & Schuster Children's, Quail Ridge Books (NC), Little Shop Of Stories (GA), Books & Books (FL), Parnassus Books (TN) and Lemuria Books (MS) for making it possible for me to talk to these young readers.
