A new chapter

Former Newbury children's librarian releases first book

(Continued)

With one book completed, the pair is already planning their second book — and possibly even other stories that will follow.

“I’m overwhelmed with how closely it fit with what I hoped for,” Collins said of Florini’s illustrations. “It just pops off the page. It gives kids so many things to look at.”

Collins will hold a book signing at Jabberwocky Bookshop, 50 Water St., Newburyport, on Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m. Once again, Collins will be collecting pajamas to donate to Cradles to Crayons. Jabberwocky will be serving cookies and milk during the Story Time.
