A. Weekend events in SF Bay area
This weekend we'll share our books across the San Francisco Bay area.

On Saturday, November 12th, we attend the Winter Boutique of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj). Author Oliver Chin will autograph books to benefit the museum, which was founded in 1987 and renovated in 2010. This annual fundraiser is a popular holiday shopping event with dozens of arts and crafts vendors.

The following day, Sunday, November 13th, we'll exhibit at the Birth and Baby Fair, at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio of San Francisco. New and expectant parents enjoy gearing up for the growing families. Plus there are free goody bags, workshops, and giveaways!

We still have "2 for 1" coupons available - get 2 admissions for the price of 1.($10 online or $15 at the door). If you're interested, contact us to pick one up!

B. The Year of the Rooster
The sky may seem dark and cloudy today, but buck up... our new hero Ray is on his way!

The Year of the Rooster will arrive in the USA around Thanksgiving. This is the 12th and concluding adventure in our annual series Tales from the Chinese Zodiac.

To commemorate this, we've printed a special poster (18 x 24), featuring all the bright and helpful animals from our newest story.

This year's amazing artwork is by Juan Calle, the illustrator of Good Dream, Bad Dream.

As a special offer, we'll give a free 8x10 print (of the cover or the poster image) to the first 5 people who pre-order The Year of the Rooster from our website.

Remember: the sun will come up tomorrow...so do your best to get ready for it!

C. 10th birthday of the The Octonauts & the Only Lonely Monster
As you may know, Immedium published the original stories of The Octonauts.

We and the authors Meomi celebrate the 10th birthday of their debut adventure:
The Octonauts & the Only Lonely Monster

Little did we know that our four book series would inspire an animated TV show, which became a hit around the world. Now countless fans, both younger and older, enjoy the adventures of these 8 pals in a rainbow of ways.

Thank you for your support! We appreciate your love of reading and learning, and desire to befriend strangers, care for our environment, and make the world a better place.
