Meet the author and illustrator of Windows, will introduce their new exciting picture book which received starred reviews from School Library Journal, Kirkus and Booklist. "It’s a genial take on city life, which makes the neighborhood seem just as comforting as home, though the child’s home—just as luminescent as the windows he or she passes—is surely the most comforting of all. Ideal bedtime reading and a gorgeously understated celebration of everyday enchantment." —Booklist
