Tish Dahlby, local author of the children's book "Pinklejinx," will be at The Learned Owl Bookshop on Feb. 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come to hear her read a story, with her books available for purchase.

All of the villagers of Jubilee love birthdays, but no one more than the baker's daughter, Joy. Blowing up balloons, gathering surprises and baking cakes, Joy makes sure that each birthday is a joyous celebration. Although her daily wish is to become a real birthday fairy, Joy awakens each morning her "plain-old self." Will Joy's special wish ever come true? A perfect gift for a special birthday girl. Bright, bold illustrations set off this happy birthday story.

Dahlby entertained her four daughters over the years with her imaginative tales and now is writing for many children. She lives in Ohio with her family.
