AUTHOR EVENT: Derek Anderson and Story County
Award-winning illustrator Derek Anderson welcomes you to the publication party for his new book, Story County: Here We Come!. Story County is the place where friends Farmer, Dog, Pig, Chicken, and Miss Cow create a special farm through teamwork. It is the kind of place where anything can, and usually does, happen. Together these friends paint the barn a rainbow of colors, plant jelly beans and candy corn, and fashion a fabulous scarecrow, until presto! -- the farm is done. Or is it?
Derek Anderson was born and raised in the real Story County, which is located in the center of Iowa farm country. He loved visiting his grandfather's farm when he was growing up. "It was such a fun, almost magical place to explore," he says. "I wanted to create a farm in my book that had that same feeling -- a place where anything is possible."
