Colin Meloy wrote it and Carson Ellis (his wife) illustrated it. Here's the WEBSITE . Kind of cool that they are both in Portland, OR. He's the lead vocalist of the band Decemberists. The book is due out Aug 30, but you can pre-order it from Powells and get a signed copy. It was written for middle school kids, but it looks like a beautiful keepsake book for anyone. They will also have a release party at the Bagdad Theater, Portland on Aug 30, 2011. I'm glad to be living here in Oregon myself. We've been having the best summer weather.
