August 19th Signing at The Book Cellar

I’ve got a book signing coming up next week that I'm quite excited about. For once it's at real local bookstore!

The Book Cellar in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood was nice enough to invite me for this month’s Local Author night. I’m a very local author, actually, since this is my neighborhood bookstore. I plan to show some animations and also put together a small Mochimochi landscape—it's always fun to show it in person. 

We’ll have copies of my new book, Adventures in Mochimochi Land, on hand too of course. 

This all starts at 7pm at The Book Cellar, 4736-38 N Lincoln Ave in Chicago. I hope to see some of my neighbors there!


Happ Fourth!

Adventures in Mochimochi Land is Here! 

I'm excited to announce that my new book, Adventures in Mochimochi Land, is now on sale everywhere! 


Well, it's not on sale in the UK until later this summer, but it's available all across the US at least! 

As I've mentioned before, this book is really special, becuase it's a combination storybook and pattern book in one. In the stories,  a giant donut tries to eat a city,


sea creatures hold an underwater election,

and a balloon falls in love with a blimp. 


The patterns are, of course, for the characters and props that you see in the stories, so for knitters it can be an interactive experience. 


Adventures in Mochimochi Land is now available from online retailers like Amazon, hopefully from your local bookstore (ask them if they have it!), and signed copies are available from my shop.
