Author and Illustrator Visit and Book Signing


Saturday, November 16 from 2-4PM

Ava (and Piggy) are back with a brand-new adventure! 

Ava proved she’s a fierce monster slayer after defeating the ferocious basement monsters to save her favorite stuffed animal, Piggy, in Ava the Monster Slayer: A Warrior Who Wears Glass.  

Now, Ava must gather her courage once again as she gets ready to attend an overnight camp for the first time. She and her cousin, Sophia, are scared of being away from home, but they take comfort in Piggy and Sophia’s Teddy being by their sides.  

After an evening hike, Ava and Sophia return to their cabin and discover Piggy and Teddy are gone! The girls refuse to leave their beloved stuffed animals outside overnight and quickly devise a rescue mission.  

Not even the growls or the stinky smells of the creatures in the woods are going to stop them in their quest. Ava and Sophia are determined to rescue Piggy and Teddy—no matter what.

Come meet Author Lisa Maggiore and Illustrator Ross Felton from 2-4PM on Saturday, November 16th.   To join the signing line, please purchase the author’s latest book, Ava and the Monster Slayer in Cousin Power, from The Bookstore. To purchase please stop in or call (630) 469-2891 or order here.
