Storytime with Sav Akyüz

We're incredibly excited to welcome illustrator Sav Akyüz (all the way from London!) for a special guest storytime! 

Akyüz is the illustrator of I Am Bear, and the new follow-up Bear Moves. Bear’s in a dancing mood, and his friend Bunny is happy to help out with the boom box. With moves like Furry Breaking, Running Bear (you run but don’t go anywhere), and the classic back spin, who could blame observers who might want to bust a move of their own?

Please RSVP for this event. Book bundle tickets are available, and admit you and your family. Books are also available for purchase in-store or online. If you want to guarantee your copy in time for the event, please buy ahead. Some stock will be available for purchase at storytime. Only books purchased from Cellar Door Books will be granted access to the signing line. 

With 14 years of storyboard artistry behind him, Sav has been asked to sketch many things by TV advertising executives. Sav has also served time as a visual effects artist on numerous feature films; enjoyed an unforgettable term at the legendary ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop’; sweated as a cloth layer-upper for famous Brit brands Burberry and Aquascutum; and, perhaps most proudly of all, peddled 99 Flake’s and Funny Feet as a wannabe ‘Mr Whippy’ stationed outside the Tate Britain. I Am Bear was his debut picture book.
