It is the season of Santa hats!  Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 5.  Local authors Wayne and Ralphine Major will be at Barnes & Noble, 8029 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, Tennessee, for a book signing from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for their first children’s book recently published by Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc.  They will have a book reading at 10 am featuring “Piddle Diddle’s Lost Hat.”  Piddle Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, has lost her favorite hat.  It is her Santa Claus hat, and she wants very much to find it.

During this busy time of the year, let Piddle Diddle help you finish your Christmas gift list.  “Piddle Diddle’s Lost Hat” is the perfect gift for all ages—including baby showers, toddlers, kindergartners, and school-age children who are learning to read.  Many adults have even bought it for themselves.  A former teacher told us that “the illustrations come alive on every page!”  The person responsible for those illustrations is Teresa Wilkerson, who combines her incredible talent with her love for animals.  As told in the biographical sketches at the back, Teresa and both authors grew up on dairy farms in beautiful East Tennessee.

We look forward to seeing you the week after Thanksgiving on Saturday, December 5, at Barnes & Noble!  Come and see if Piddle Diddle finds her favorite Santa hat in time for Christmas!
