Babymouse Creators Jenni & Matt Holm

Tuesday, Oct. 1, 7 p.m.
The Evil Princess vs. The Brave Knight 9781524771348Join us on Tuesday, October 1 at 7 p.m. for a fun program featuring Jenni and Matt Holm, siblings who write and illustrate books together, including the best-selling Babymouse and Sunny comic book series. Jenni also has won three Newbery Honors for her kids’ novels, Our Only May Amelia, Penny From Heaven, and Turtle In Paradise. At our event, the Holms will present their new picture book, The Evil Princess vs. The Brave Knight. In the book, two siblings find themselves at odds until they decide – albeit temporarily -- to join forces in a quest. In its review, Publishers Weekly noted: “The sly contrast between words and pictures is the source of much of the story’s fun: “He freed the fair maiden from her prison” shows the Brave Knight crossing the bathtub to rescue their cat. It’s a droll portrait of the love-hate sibling bond—both medieval and modern.” At our event, Politics & Prose will be selling copies of the Holm's books, but our program is free and no purchase is required to attend.
