Bob Staake and Chris Raschka at Blue Manatee

Bob Staake and Caldecott Winner Chris Raschka came to Blue Manatee a couple weeks ago and I took some pictures and video for our blog.

It was an early morning (8:30 am) but they did a great job. They also said to give their salutations to the Cincinnati illustrators.

I also took some Vine Videos:

Here is the finished mural. It is still in the window if you want to see it in person.


  1. Wow! I wish I could have been there.
    The timing of this is funny, I just took Raschka's book "Fortune Cookie" back to the library today. I felt it was his best one yet.

  2. I should have promoted this more robustly on this blog. I think there are still signed books at the store.
