Avid Bookshop presents Caldecott award-winning author and illustrator Matthew Cordell in celebration of his new book, King Alice, on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, from 6-7pm at the Prince Ave. bookshop. There is no admission charge.


Alice and her family are stuck indoors on a snowy day. Alice loves to read, and when her dad suggests that she make her own book, she snaps out of her "I'm bored" mode and makes up a story that lasts 'til the lights go out later that night.

Here is a book that celebrates books, reading, and an imaginative way that one family handles being housebound.


Matthew Cordell is the Caldecott award-winning creator of Wolf in the Snow, Trouble Gum, Another BrotherHello! Hello!, and Wish. He has illustrated the books of renowned authors including Philip Stead (Special Delivery), Rachel Vail (the Justin Case series), and Gail Carson Levine (Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It). He lives outside of Chicago with his wife, the novelist Julie Halpern, and their two children.
