The Bookworm Bookstore will be welcoming author/illustrator Henry Cole on Thursday, November 14th, 2014 at 4:30 PM. (Note: This is a change from what I previously posted!)
Henry Cole is a prolific author and illustrator whose stories are enjoyed by millions of children. To learn more about his books you can visit his website!
Do these pictures look familiar?
They are just a few of the illustrations Henry provided for 2010's Summer Reading Program, "Make a Splash, READ!"
Here is a video of Henry Cole doing a quick sketch!
Some of the books written and illustrated by Henry Cole include:

November 14, 2013 UPDATE!
I just got back from meeting Henry Cole at The Bookworm Bookstore! I was able to meet him, have some pictures taken, and get several books autographed! Here are some photos:
I had a great time meeting another one of my favorite authors and illustrators! Hopefully you will get a chance to meet someone who, like Henry Cole, gets to share words and artwork with children across the country!
