The Reading Bug is thrilled to host Emmy winning actor Henry Winkler, Author Lin Oliver, and Caldecott Medal–winner, Dan Santat!

Meet the incredible team behind this adorable full color early reader chapter book. A 30 minute presentation will begin at 6pm and and an author-signing will follow!

Each ticket includes one adult, one child and one signed book. The book is for children ages 4-8 years old. This will be a very crowded event. NO children under age 3 please. No exceptions and no strollers will be permitted in the store. We will also have “signing line only” tickets available should you not want to or be able to sit for the presentation. Please read ticket choices/descriptions carefully.

Willow Feathers McBeaver, aka Detective Duck, is a crime-solving (and very precocious) little duck. She and her animal pals live on beautiful Dogwood Pond, which is adjacent to Lazy Days, a human campground in New England. A pristine spot with clear water, abundant wildlife, and shady willow trees, Dogwood Pond is encountering puzzling problems—mysteries that arise from human-caused disruptions in nature such as water pollution, garbage, warming climate, and human encroachment.

Fortunately, Detective Duck is on the job, solving these puzzling mysteries before they get out of hand and destroy their habitat! Armed with her ever-present satchel for collecting clues, her logical mind, and endless curiosity, she boldly goes where no pond creature has before, determined to unravel the mysteries and solve any environmental problem that besets her beloved Dogwood Pond!
