The 2012 Texas Book Festival was held October 27th and 28th this year and featured children’s authors such as Jewel, Tad Hills, Jon Scieska, Jon Klassen, and many others. It was a beautiful brisk weekend in Austin, which was a nice change from the super-hot weather at last year’s festival. Here’s a few shots of the festival:

All in all, it was a great day! We met a lot of new people and made some friends. We even got a few nice compliments on the Sir Kaye book. I met three different families on Saturday who bought the new Sir Kaye book for their kids. The same families stopped by again on Sunday and all the parents mentioned how their kids were really enjoying the story. One of them even said that her son hasn’t put the book down since Saturday! That was such a nice thing to hear, thanks so much for sharing the positive feedback!
