Megan Dowd Lambert

There’s a new kid in town! Megan Dowd Lambert follows up her Ezra Jack Keats Honor book, A CROW OF HIS OWN with A KID OF THEIR OWN! In this sweet and funny picture book, Rooster Clyde must adjust to having a new goat and her kid on the farm. At the event, Megan will read from her book, answer questions, and sign copies. 

In this fresh and funny follow-up to the Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book A Crow of His Own, rooster Clyde is forced to adjust to new roommates on the farm when Fran the goat and her kid, Rowdy, take up residence. Can Clyde handle having a new kid in town?

Rooster Clyde has just settled in and found his voice when everyone demands that he take his hard-earned crow down a notch so as to not disturb newcomer Rowdy. That doesn't sit well with Clyde. Neither does the fact that motherly goose Roberta seems to have taken the new animals' side. The farm community learning to deal with a young member of the group is the main story in text and is paired with a wordless story in illustrations that shows Farmer Jay and Farmer Kevin getting ready for their adopted child to arrive on the farm.

Megan Dowd Lambert is the author of A Crow of His OwnReal Sisters Pretend, and Reading Picture Books with Children. She is an instructor at the Center for the Study of Children's Literature at Simmons University, where she earned her master's degree.
