Local artist Mark Ricketts has a very exciting new picture book for kids coming out next year. For now, he’s shared this great Pirate Cat with us that you can print out and color!
Don’t miss Mark’s newest book (for a slightly older crowd), The Flatlander’s Guide to Maine. His book launch party is at the May Greendrinks event at the Bangor Y on May 14.
We’re excited to have local cartoonist/illustrator Josh Alves returning to Kid Central Festival this year. He’ll be at The Briar Patch from 10-11 AM where you can join him in making a Putrid Puppet Pal from the Zeke Meeks chapter book series. Catch him for his autograph then or stop by his table in Kid Central HQ at 11 AM. Josh will give you a sneek peak of his new picture book, Lilly Bristol, Dinosaur Wrangler and the Town a Tyrannosaurus Wrecks!
Here’s a special Lilly Bristol coloring page you can print out at home and bring to show Josh at the festival.
