The Blue Bunny Books and Toys
Special Events


Saturday January 24th, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Book Launch Party with Peter H. Reynolds and Susan Verde

The Blue Bunny Bookstore, 577 High Street, in Dedham Square will be celebrating the newest picture book collaboration by Peter H. Reynolds and Susan Verde on Saturday January 24th, from 11 a.m. til 1 p.m.  You and Me, an ode to friendship written by Verde and illustrated by Reynolds, is the second book they have produced together, following The Museum, which debuted in 2013.  This new book tells the tale of two cats and how destiny intervenes to bring them together.  Perfect for Valentine’s Day or as a gift for any special friend.

"Perfect as a gift book exchanged between kindred spirits, this could also spark interesting conversations about the role of chance in our lives.” --Kirkus Reviews 

"...the small trim size may give the book its strongest audience among gift-giving adults, though children will have no trouble appreciating it.” --Publishers Weekly 

"This title is a wonderful introduction to the concept of serendipity and the magic of true friendship.” — School Library Journal 

Free and all welcome.  Call the store at 781-493-6568 for more information about the event.
