Send the invites, set the table, and prepare for all types of guests in author- illustrator Katie Vernon’s rollicking good time picture book, We’re Having a Party (for Everyone!).
How do you host a party for a chipmunk, a ghost, a vampire, an astronaut, a giraffe, a robot, a tooth, an octopus, a rockstar, a T. rex, a queen, Gramps, Paw Paw, and Bigfoot? Lana has a few tips for her nervous pup, Lemon, on how to make sure their first dinner party is a total success! First you must take guests’ coats, thank those who bring gifts, and, most importantly, invite everyone to dance (after dessert, of course).
Bursting with color and quirky illustrations, We’re Having a Party (for Everyone!) teaches young readers about social etiquette, accommodating others, and how much fun goes into planning a shindig. With funny details on every page and an imaginative double-twist ending, young readers will be eager to host an amazing dinner party of their own.

About the Author

Katie Vernon is an author-illustrator who spent most of her life in the Midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains. Katie creates her pieces with both traditional and digital media—always looking for opportunities to experiment and have fun. Katie’s art can be seen in books (including Ari Arranges Everything and Happy Halloweenie), greeting cards, magazines, newspapers, home decor, department stores, grocery stores, an arboretum, and two waxing salons in Mexico. Besides making art, she loves adventuring with her high school sweetheart, their kiddo, and a couple of weird but lovable dogs. She currently lives in Flagstaff, Arizona, and shares her studio with a large cricket that sings to her all day long.

Praise For…

"Childlike, mixed-media...brimming with clever details. Whimsical warmth."
— Kirkus

"This book’s punny wordplay and visual surprises make it best enjoyed up close—kiddos will giggle as they snuggle down and plan a future dinner party (real or imagined) of their own."
— The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
