Robert's Snow Auction

You can bid on your very own piece of original art by a professional children's book artist at the auction at
Robert's Snow. My snowflake, "The Mane Event," is on the auction block right now, along with many other wonderful snowflakes. Best of all, the proceeds go to benefit the Dana Farber Cancer Center, for cancer research. Place your bid now! A perfect gift for any children's book fan.

See ya at the auction,

Come make leaf crowns, hear (and buy signed copies of) Leaves and Monster Hug!; celebrate the season!
