Join us for story time with author and Illustrator Deborah Marcero to celebrate the release of her new book, Haylee and Comet: A Tale of Cosmic Friendship!
In the warm and wonderful tradition of emerging reader series about friendship like Frog and Toad and Elephant and Piggie, comes Deborah Marcero's Haylee and Comet, a book about a secret wish, a girl named Haylee, and a cosmic friendship.
Haylee and Comet share one simple wish: a friend. And as with all great best-friendships, the universe brings them together in the right place at the right time. With each adventure, Haylee and Comet learn about what it takes to grow a strong and long-lasting friendship: accepting their differences, discovering the things they share, communicating with honesty, and being open to forgiveness. And just maybe, there'll be some surprises along the way.
Deborah Marcero is the author-illustrator of several picture books, including In a Jar, My Heart is a Compass, and Rosie & Crayon, as well as the emerging readers series Haylee and Comet. Having worked on many children’s books, Deborah has a passion for storytelling in many media. Faculty at Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults, she has a BFA from the University of Michigan, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and K-8 teaching certification from Northwestern University.
