FoxTale BookShoppe, Woodstock, GA

I have been telling myself for the longest time to get in my car and drive up to Woodstock, GA to visit the FoxTale Book Shoppe. For whatever reason, which seems silly since I am a book blogger, today was the first time I ever crossed the absolutely delightful threshold of the FoxTale Book Shoppe. The book store is located right off of Main Street in downtown Woodstock. (And they have a parking lot, which is key in any downtown area.) 

We made our way specifically for the Whose Shadow Do I See book launch, which was written by Rosalind Bunn and illustrated by Mark Braught.

I can't wait to share with you a review of both the book launch itself and the book tomorrow on the blog. Make sure to check in tomorrow. 

But, for now, let me gush more about the book store. 

Little J was completely smitten in the children's book section. I love how they only have a small selection of books instead of packing the shelves. Each book feels like it was hand selected and chosen to sit on the shelf in a specific spot. I loved the eclectic titles chosen for the children's section, so many of which I had never heard of and had me intrigued and spellbound. 

My children each choose a book, in addition to purchasing a copy of the book Whose Shadow Do I See. I selected two books. (Greedy Mommy.) I purchased Jan, the fox & me by Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault. Oh, I can't wait to read this graphic novel tonight! It is breathtaking. I will be greedily keeping this book in my room. 

I also purchased, because the book shop is full of fox related items, a guide to foxes. I have a little secret...I am working on a middle grade novel. I have been working on it for almost a year now. I am in love with the characters that are developing on the page. In fact, they have been pulling me away from spending as much time blogging. I am lost in the world that has grown from a figment of an idea. Several of the characters in this book are foxes. Of course I needed to purchase these books for research purposes. 

The book launch, which I will blog about tomorrow, not only included a reading of Rosalind's latest book, but we were lucky enough to hear the book The Monsters Three, which Rosalind co-wrote with Kathleen Howard. It was wonderful to hear them both read this Halloween story, the perfect kick-off for the fall season.

Here is a sneak peak of Rosalind Bunn (author) and Mark Braught (illustrator) signing books at the event!
