How to Eat a Book



Copperfield's Books welcomes Mrs. and Mr. MacLeod to Petaluma for a Storytime event in celebration of their new book - How to Eat a Book.

This is a free event. Masks required.

 With hints of Shel Silverstein and a splattering of Edward Gorey, Mrs. and Mr. MacLeod’s How to Eat a Book is a whimsical, modern celebration of books, brought to life with dipped pen-and-ink cutout art photographed in a three-dimensional stage diorama.

"Sheila sat down to eat her first book and the strangest thing happened . . . The book ate HER."

One by one, Sheila, Gerald, and Geraldine are eaten . . . by their books. This peculiar turn of events flings them far and wide. Sheila escapes the weight of the world entirely, while Gerald braves the wonder of seeing it up close. And Geraldine, well, Geraldine turns as terrifically terrible as she possibly can.

Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod craft a whimsical, modern celebration of books--with hints of Shel Silverstein and a splattering of Edward Gorey. Each page is fantastically illustrated with dipped pen-and-ink cutout art, photographed in a three-dimensional stage diorama, and digitally colored. The result is an irresistible world bursting with charm and character.

Authors: Mrs. & Mr. MacLeod are children's bookmakers, living off-the-grid with their five children in the redwoods of Mendocino, California. Mrs. MacLeod received her MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and spent her early career as an art director in San Francisco. She combines dipped pen and ink with cut paper and light to create original illustrations. Mr. MacLeod spends a heap of time engaging with the wild in the world and has the scars to prove it. Those scars have turned into stories.
