C. David Derrick at Kidspace in Pasadena
For those of you in Southern California, on May 11th, come see author David Derrick read his storybook Animals Don't, So I Won't! at Kidspace Children's Museum near the world famous Pasadena Rose Bowl.

Kidspace is one of our most favorite kid-friendly places!

Since Dave is a story artist at DreamWorks Animation, get ready to watch a cool drawing demonstration too!

Animals Don't, So I Won't! is our 10th story available as an Apple iOS ebook - check it out!

Meanwhile, Dave is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming September story, which also is chock full of more fun-loving animals: I'm the Scariest Thing in the Jungle!


The Year of the Snake:
Tales from the Chinese Zodiac

"Lily and Suzie show not only each other, but also Lily's grandparents and the farm, what a couple of friends can do when they put their heads together and think up some creative solutions to some interesting (and fiery!) problems!"
- Northshire Book Blog

The Woollyhoodwinks vs. the Dark Patch

"In the opening line and in much of the story, I could hear the voice of the great Frank Oz. Though it was also filled with many beautiful turns of phrase and was certainly a lyrical joy to read aloud…The artwork in the book is perhaps my favorite thing of all, a blend of traditional illustration and fabric crafts that have been photo-shopped in. It has a warmth and depth to it that I find very appealing."
