Blurp's Book of Manners



Copperfield’s Books is thrilled to welcome Cindy Derby to Marin Country Mart for her new book - Blurp's Book of Manners

This is an outdoor event behind Copperfield’s Books that will be tented and heated.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration required due to limited seating.

From Caldecott Honoree Cindy Derby comes an uproarious tale about an etiquette coach and the sentient paint blob that just might teach her proper manners.

When etiquette coach Ms. Picklepop teeters off her stool and spills a bucket of paint, a creature emerges. Not a scary one, or an evil one, or anything of the sort. Instead, what comes alive is ...


She'll have to carry on with her lesson, despite Blurp's many, messy distractions. But paint splotches and burps aren't all that disrupt Ms. Picklepop's decorous class. Perhaps through an unlikely friendship, Ms. Picklepop will learn a thing or two about manners herself.

Fall in love with Cindy Derby's newest adorable creation - Blurp - in this colorful, heartwarming, and laugh-out-loud funny tale.

Author: Cindy Derby is an illustrator and author based out of San Francisco, California. She is a puppeteer and has performed all over the world. How To Walk An Ant is her first picture book.
