Mossby's Magic Carpet Handbook, with Ilona Bray
Join us for an enchanted morning when Seattle author Ilona Bray comes to talk about her middle reader book Mossby's Magic Carpet Handbook: A Flyer's Guide to Mossby's Model D3 Extra Small Magic Carpet (Especially for Young or Vertically Challenged People). The delightful, well-illustrated book is aimed at readers 8 - 12 years old.
Just imagine! What if one day, you receive a magic carpet—perhaps from a mysterious great aunt who’s done with her own high-flying adventures? Will you be ready to find your way to fabulous locations (and home again) and bravely handle altitude, storms, G-forces, and more?
Fortunately, Mossby’s Magic Carpet Handbook has all the instructions you’ll need, plus your great aunt’s handwritten notes! Come learn more . . . .
Having grown up in rainy Seattle, Ilona Bray knows the importance of entering a world of imagination through books. Her real-world adventures have taken her around the globe: studying philosophy at a small women's college in Pennsylvania, canning salmon in Alaska, representing immigrants and refugees in San Francisco (yes, she's a lawyer, too), and traveling to far-flung destinations like Turkey, Guatemala, China, and Lithuania. She now focuses on writing books for both adults and children―and, of course, on working her way up from the position of assistant magicalist at Mossby's Magical Objects Ltd.
