Henry Herz

Occasional Writers Coffeehouse discussion leader Henry Herz writes fantasy and science fiction for children, both solo and with sons Josh and Harrison. Henry is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators, and reviews children’s books for the San Francisco Book Review and the San Diego Book Review. Henry has three new picture books on the shelves for this event, and tea and biscuits will be served. Alice's Magic Garden: Before the Rabbit Hole . . . is a prequel to Lewis Carroll’s tale. Kirkus Reviews noted: “The illustrations are primarily black and white until Alice enters a walled garden outside the school. Paintings in lovely pastel shades take over, and from then on, Alice’s world changes. Her kindness to creatures she finds in the garden—a rabbit, a caterpillar, and a lory bird—endear her to them, and they, in turn, become characters familiar from the classic: the White Rabbit, the Caterpillar, and the Gryphon. Best of all, the magical trio promises friendship forever.” 

Dee Leone, author of Dough Knights & Dragons, had wordplay-filled praise for How the Squid Got Two Long Arms: “Herz has inked an origin tale that is awash in adventure and that stretches the imagination … and more. Readers will enjoy following the exploits of a ten-armed bandit whose thievery makes waves and whose plan to “cap off” his piratical pursuits turns out to be eel-conceived. Astute underwater observers will be clam-oring for a sea-quel when they notice how a fashionable fish takes a liking to something interesting at the tail end.” And Good Egg and Bad Apple is an exercise in food-related wordplay!

This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy. Event purchases through Mysterious Galaxy not only keeps our bookstore doors open, but also makes author signings possible.
