For kids who march to their own drummer -- or are
especially attached to a comfort object -- here is a
completely adorable character who wears his singularity in

Jameson only ever wears green pants. When he wears
green pants, he can do anything. But if he wants to be in
his cousin's wedding, he's going to have to wear a tuxedo,
and that means black pants.

It's an impossible decision: Jameson would love nothing more than to be in his cousin's wedding, but how can he not wear green pants?
Will Jameson turn down this big honor, or will he find a
way to make everyone happy, including himself?

In this pitch-perfect ode to individualism, acclaimed authorillustrator
Kenneth Kraegel creates a character readers of all ages can root for -- whatever color pants they wear.

Anderson’s Bookshops will host an event with Kenneth Kraegel at 7 pm on Monday, April 10, at their bookshop in downtown Naperville.
Bring your family and friends to enjoy his presentation. Contact Anderson’s at 630-355-2665 to reserve your place.
