The clock is tick-tick-ticking… The Great Connecticut Caper launches January 4, 2015!
We can’t wait to release the first chapter of The Great Connecticut Caper, but until we do you can at least meet the author and illustrator. Both have done fantastic jobs of setting the stage for this serialized storybook for young people.
You’ll even get the chance meet them in real life at the Caper Launch Party scheduled for January 7th at the Wadsworth Atheneum! Please click here for more details and to register.
