Olympia Children Authors Come to Yelm

Olympia Children Authors Come to Yelm

I met them at the Thurston County Fair promoting their book, The Chicken and the Dog.  Andre and Amanda Maxwell have written an adorable book about trying to cultivate Urban farming that appeals to the youngest of readers (and I couldn’t help lovin’ it, too!).   It tells the partly true story of two urban chickens whose happy life is interrupted by bandits of the masked kind (raccoons) in a chicken burglary that leads the dog and one of the chickens on a rescue mission all around Olympia to find their stolen friend. 

The Maxwells have created an entire kingdom of t-shirts, temporary tattoos, coloring pages and website activities for kids that correspond to the book.  You can even download the book to your Ipad.  They also feature local blogs relating to everything chicken.  The couple will be at the Yelm Farmers Market August 26th 11am-4pm signing their book and providing fun activities for the kids.  If you have kids under age 10, you have to meet these special authors.  The book would even be a great donation to your school library.
