Denise G. Britan’s new picture book to be featured at this year’s Frankfurt Book Exhibit.

From author Denise G. Britan comes a delightful tale about meeting new friends on the first day of school. Made available through Xlibris, Harry Meets Sam is a picture book that young readers will definitely love.

Children are introduced to six-year-old Harry, a boy who lives at the end of a long, straight, red dirt road in Slapout, Alabama. He lives with his mother and aunt in a white, two-storey house that has a small porch in the front and a garden in the back.

Harry could not wait for school to start. When he was five, he went to little school at the church with other kids. But this time, the day came when he could get on the big, yellow bus and go to first grade. With his backpack filled with a case of pencils and a lunchbox with his favorite peanut-butter sandwich, Harry steps into the big yellow bus, excited for the things that lie ahead. Different new faces stare at him, making him feel a bit scared. Will Harry be able to find a friend among the new crowd?

Lush with hand-drawn images by the author’s son, Harry Meets Sam is a charming read for young children who are excited to have a first hand at school.

This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Exhibit in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12 to 16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
