MISSION VIEJO...“Fancy Nancy” illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser and author Ann Patchett will make a special appearance in Mission Viejo on Saturday, May 18 to discuss their new picture book “Lambslide.”

Sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library, the presentation is at 11:30 am in the City Hall Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center.

Ann Patchett has penned eight novels and three works of nonfiction. She won the PEN/Faulkner Award, England's Orange Prize and the Book Sense Book of the Year – and was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World. Her work has been translated into more than 30 languages.

Robin Preiss Glasser has illustrated many children’s books including the bestselling “Fancy Nancy”; “Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy”; “Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly”; and “Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas” by Jane O’Connor. She is also the illustrator of “America: A Patriotic Primer” by Lynne Cheney. She lives in Southern California with her family.

The story follows Nicolette Farmer, a student running for class president, who’s ensured by her family that she’ll win by a landslide. A pack of overconfident lambs mistakenly hear “lambslide” and can’t believe there’s a slide made just for them. But when they can’t find one on the farm, there’s only one thing left to do: take a vote!  Will the lambs ever get their special slide?
