I Love You, Blankie
By Sheryl Haft

The author Sheryl Haft has done an amazing job publicising I Love You, Blankie. Sheryl recently held an event in her hometown New York and these are just a few of the photos from what looked like a really fun book party.

 I absolutely love the Blankie Baby puppet! It is so exciting to see my illustrations literally brought to life. Thanks Sheryl and thanks to the puppeteers and performers.
