Charlie Mylie Signing on April 18
Come join Best of Books in welcoming author and illustrator Charlie Mylie while he signs his debut picture book, Something For You!
Something for You is a touching picture book about lending a hand and the gift of friendship, from debut author-illustrator Charlie Mylie, whom Brian Selznick has heralded as “a major new talent in children's books.”
A mouse’s friend is sick. What can he do to help her? He’ll go get her something! But what? Something little? Something to share? Or something just for her? When his search doesn’t go as planned, our mouse realizes that the best gift to give is something he’s had all along. With expressive characters, sweeping landscapes, and spare text, Charlie Mylie’s debut is a charming story of the comforts that friendship can bring.
Charlie Mylie is a Kansas City-based illustrator who spent years performing as “Pop Up Charlie,” drawing on-the-spot watercolors by request across the country. He also works with the founders of the Rabbit Hole, the World’s First Explorastorium. Something For You is his debut picture book.
