57th Street Children's Book Fair

I went to the 57th Street Children's Book Fair and had a great time! I met a very special fellow author, I'Deyah Ricketts, an eight-year-old girl whose parents self-published the picture book she wrote when she was four and she's now working on a novel! We exchanged autographed books - she was so adorable!  Her book, Where are the Animals? was published by I'Deyah Books - they have a fantastic website too - check it out at!


  1. What a great picture and what a sweet and talented girl!! She will go far!

  2. I know, she's going to be running Simon & Schuster one day! Did you look at her website - it's amazing!
