Our Wonderful New Website!

By now, I am sure you have noticed our wonderful new website, designed (and illustrated) by none other than our own Blue Apple Books artist Yukiko Kido, of Posey Prefers Pink fame. With a little help from her friends, she was able to bring to life a site that we believe shines brightly among other mostly traditional publisher offerings. 

Thanks, Yuki!

Broadway Barks Hits #5 on the New York Times Children's Bestseller List!

The Blue Apple team has just returned from Book Expo America in Los Angeles, where we learned that Broadway Barks has hit #5 on the New York Times Children's Bestseller List! Needless to say, we were thrilled! This news came just in time for Bernadette's two California signings, one at Book Expo and another at Book Soup in West Hollywood. Every last book was signed at both these events.
Also at Book Expo, we were delighted to have Simms Taback sign copies of Simms Taback's Safari Animals... which we have just been notified is a 2008 Parents' Choice Gold Award winner! Last year, only one book received this prestigious distinction. Simms' signing was a fantastic success, running over the allotted time to ensure no one went away disappointed.
If you're in the New York City area, be sure to drop by the Barnes & Noble at Lincoln Triangle on June 12th at 10am to hear Bernadette sing "Kramer's Song" from Broadway Barks, and to have a copy of the book signed.
