Turkey Claus is Coming to Doylestown

The Doylestown Bookshop will host Doylestown author/illustrator Lee Harper this weekend, as well as Philly author Ty Drago.

The Doylestown Bookshop will host two fun, free events this weekend that you won't want to miss.

On Friday, November 16 at 7 p.m., author Ty Drago will discuss the influences that made him want to become an author, his inspirations for The Undertakers Series, and his passion for science fiction followed by a book signing.

About the Book: 

Twelve-year old Will Ritter and his rag-tag army of teenage resistance fighters may have triumphed over the Zombies (alien-possessed corpses) last time...but that’s the thing about the dead—they keep coming back. A new Corpse leader has crossed the rift and taken command of the invasion: The Queen of the Dead is even more brilliant and ruthless than her predecessor, and her ambitions are even deadlier. Will and his friends are the only ones that can stop the corpses. They’re the Undertakers: the earth’s first, last, and only defense against the undead.

About the Book:

Turkey is in trouble. Again.

He made it through Thanksgiving without becoming a turkey dinner, but now it's almost Christmas, and guess what's on the menu?

Turkey decides the only thing to do is to ask Santa for help. He sets off for the North Pole, but getting in to see Santa at Christmastime isn't as easy as Turkey expected. It's going to take all his ideas, and his clever disguises, to find a way into Santa's house.

After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise, and Santa has the perfect solution. In this holiday treat, a companion to Turkey Trouble, Wendi Silvano's story is once again matched with the artwork of Lee Harper.
