The Newtown Bookshop is thrilled that we will be hosting area school visits with Michael Rex on February 10th  throughout the day.  Michael will be touring celebrating the release of his new book "Facts vs. Opinions vs. Robots"!  

The Newtown Bookshop is offering signed copies of his books to all our customers, please order below or call the store at 215-968-2400.  

ABOUT THE BOOK

Do you know the difference between a fact and an opinion? It can be a hard thing to understand. Some things are facts--like the number of robots in this book. Other things are opinions--like which robot would make the best friend, or which robot dances best. And sometimes to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion, you need to wait to get more information--that's because facts can be proven true or false, and opinions are things you feel and believe--but that you can't prove.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Michael Rex has written and/or illustrated over forty children's books, including Eat Pete, With Any Luck, I'll Drive a Truck (by David Friend), the New York Times #1 bestseller Goodnight GoonThe Runaway MummyTruck Duck, and the Fangbone series (which has also been turned into an animated TV series). He has a master's degree in visual arts education (K-12) and worked as a New York City art teacher for four years. He lives in Leonia, New Jersey, with his wife and their two sons.
