Last month, author Tania Del Rio and illustrator Will Staehle set out on a two-week tour in celebration of Warren the 13th and the Whispering Woods (Quirk), the second book in their middle-grade adventure series. The tour brought them to schools and bookstores from Georgia to California, where they answered questions from students, led art activities, and signed books.

The first stop was on March 20 at the Bush School in Seattle, where Staehle led students in an art class.

The students at Oak Grove Elementary in Atlanta shared their book recommendations with Staehle and Del Rio.

Del Rio and Staehle signed books during their March 23 visit to Barber Middle School in Houston.

While in Houston, the author and illustrator stopped by Blue Willow Bookshop. Here Staehle adds his name to the store’s wall of fame.

On the West Coast, Staehle and Del Rio appeared at the Sequoyah School in Los Angeles on March 29. Here Del Rio takes a turn at the drawing board.
