Last night was the launch party for Rosanne Kurstedt’s latest book, The Karate Kid, illustrated by Mark Chambers (RP Kids). In a nutshell, it was KARATE-TAS-TIC!
“Solid color backgrounds keep readers focused on the book’s entertaining but accurate content, and the smoothly written text incorporates the mental component of the sport. . . . [A] solid introduction to karate.”―Booklist
The Karate Kid (as you may have guessed) is an adorable kid goat who is a dedicated student of Karate (Karateka). And the book takes you on the kid’s journey as he learns his stances, kicks, punches, strikes, and blocks.
Here are a few photographic highlights from yesterday’s packed launch party:
If you were unable to attend last night’s festivities, you can catch Rosanne at the Easton Book Festival on October 26th. (I’ll be there too!)
