Event: Some Pets Launch Party with Angela DiTerlizzi and Brendan Wenzel
When: Friday, September 30th, *6:30 pm*
Where: The Odyssey Bookshop
The Odyssey is thrilled to welcome back Angela DiTerlizzi and Brendan Wenzel. The duo that brought you the “bright” and “breezy” (Booklist) Some Bugs is back with a vibrant companion book that’s packed with your favorite pets: Some Pets.
Some pets sit.
Some pets stay.
Some pets fetch,
And some pets play.
Come one, come all, to the pet show! With dogs and cats, horses and chickens, hamsters and chinchillas—and many, many more!—this book celebrates animal companions of all shapes and sizes. Who will take home the coveted Best in Show ribbon? Join the fun to find out!
Our book party will feature giveaways and more fun surprises! And because some pets need our help, we are teaming up with local animal shelters to give them the care they need. Bring a donation of pet food, toys, beddings, etc (check the full list of donation needs here: https://www.dakinhumane.org/our-wish-list.html and here: http://www.tjoconnoradoptioncenter.com/tjo/index.php?id=donate0) and get your very own SOME PETS poster!
