Coloring Toodle-oo Ruby Blue at the Brooklyn Book Festival and Free Coloring Page Downloads

Garn was at the Brooklyn Book Festival and we had lots of books for children and young adults at discount prices. Garn children’s authors and illustrators were there. We read books with children and gave them pictures to color from Toodle-oo Ruby Blue! Better still, illustrator Rachel Backshall (feat. gallery below) was there to talk with young artists about her brilliant work as an illustrator.

Rachel Backshall: Illustrator of Toodle-oo Ruby Blue! 


One of the great pleasures for Garn Press at the Brooklyn Book Festival was that Rachel Backshall the artist who illustrated Toodle-oo Ruby Blue! came from Scotland and spent the entire Saturday reading Ruby Blue with young children and coloring the two pages from Ruby Blue that she had turned into coloring pages.

Rachel was genuinely interested in talking with the children about Ruby Blue and Lilly Wu and all the toys that come alive in the story, and the little children were equally happy to talk to her about the story, their drawings, and their lives. It was magical.

At Garn Press we were so excited for the 2017 Brooklyn Book Festival. Forty thousand readers and we wanted to meet and chat with them all! Our authors were on hand to talk with everyone who came to greet us and we sold books, book-bags, t-shirts and mugs at discount prices. A great celebration!
