Angela Whited (she/her)
Storyteller, Events Coordinator
Angela joined the good ship Red Balloon in the fall of 2014, and assumed the job of Fairy Godmother of Events in 2015. She studied creative writing at Macalester College and has been loudly supervising kids and teens for almost two decades. She loves getting to know fans and authors at events; dramatic readings of picture books (and dust jacket copy); all the great books about princesses, witches, unicorns, creepy trees, and/or spaceships; and hanging out with the singing animal puppets that come to storytime. Angela lives in South Minneapolis with her husband, Chris, and their menagerie: Charlie Cat, Scout Fincheater, Tess of the Baskervilles, and Shepherd Book (the dog).
Fox and his friends are fantastic! You can't go wrong with a book by Corey R. Tabor that stars Fox, but this particular book includes my current, favorite, two-page illustration, which you can see pictured above.
This is the first book of my FAVORITE series (even though I can read longer books)! Full of vibrant illustrations, great jokes, secret identities, friends, goats, horses, and not-too-scary monsters The Princess in Black is an awesome first chapter book series for emerging readers to read on their own or for stronger readers to read to someone else.
