Eau Claire, Wisconsin, October 6th

Wee Creek Press will soon be releasing Calvin the Cookie Maker by Caroline Akervik.

It’s December in Wisconsin and not quite Christmas, which means it’s already cold and snowy and all Calvin Greene can think about is Christmas. After watching a cooking show on TV, he is inspired to make a glittery Christmas Cookie book that he tries to share with his parents, but they’re too busy to pay attention. Adding to Calvin’s holiday blues, two of the best players on his hockey team want him to play with them in the Pond Hockey Tournament, but his best friends, Perry, who’s not a very good hockey player, wants Calvin to play with him, too. What should Calvin do? A snow storm is coming, so who knows if the Pond Hockey will even happen? Life is crazy and Christmas is around the corner. Will Calvin and his family and friends have time to take a breath and enjoy the holiday season?

Calvin the Cookie Maker is a charming, soon-to-be holiday classic with a distinctly Midwestern feel to it. It is sure to appeal to reluctant readers in the middle grades. The illustrations and cover art are by Nina Marie Rothfus, whose other book illustrations include Melanie Gets a Nanny  and Mr. Poots and the Scary Baby series.

Calvin the Cookie Maker will be available in both paperback and in eBook format. | #CAkervik
