If at first you don't succeed, fly again! Children's Choice Award Finalist Ross Burach is celebrating his comical new picture book, THE LITTLE BUTTERFLY THAT COULD, in a virtual event hosted An Unlikely Story Bookstore on April 14th at 10am. During the event, Ross will discuss how he went from being a kid who loved to draw, to a professional who makes picture books for a living, followed by a reading of his new book and a drawing demonstration. Be sure to have paper and a writing utensil handy to follow along during the drawing demonstration! This presentation is perfect for ages 4-8, and students, teachers, and parents everywhere are welcome to tune in. Save your spot in the free event below. 

Ross Burach has kindly autographed bookplates for everyone purchasing THE LITTLE BUTTERFLY THAT COULD from An Unlikely Story, while supplies last.

What if I can't?

Which way to the flowers?

That way. 200 miles.

How am I supposed to travel that far?!

You fly.

Can I take a plane?


Then I'll never make it!
