Dian Curtis Regan’s newest picture book, Space Boy and his Dog, is just out from Boyds Mills Press, with comic-style illustrations by Robert Neubecker. Publishers Weekly called it “a funny and fresh spin on sibling conflict,” and School Library Journal called it, “a good read-aloud to highlight strong female characters and discuss sibling rivalries.” Two more books about Space Boy and his crew are in production. Dian is the author of 60 books for young readers – other popular titles include Barnyard Slam, Princess Nevermore, the Monster of the Month series, and The World According to Kaley. Upcoming Signings: Dian Curtis Regan and Maria Faulconer (mariafaulconer.com) will be autographing books on Mother’s Day, May 10th, at Terra Verde (208 N. Tejon in Colorado Springs; 719-444-8621), from one to three p.m. Maria’s newest picture book is A Mom for Umande, which is based on a true story which happened at the Cheynne Mountain Zoo. Maria’s other title is Arianna and the Strawberry Tea. Diane invites you to a Launch Party for Space Boy and his Dog on Saturday, April 25th, from 4 to 6 pm.
