Kids of all ages and their parents are welcome to come hear Andrew read and speak about the importance of reading and the arts. For every copy of Only In Dreams purchased at McNally Robinson, Paul Frank and Chronicle will donate a new book and match the sale with a monetary contribution to First Book, which gives children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. And, bring your autographed copy of Only In Dreams to the after party at The Paul Frank Store New York and get 20% off anything that makes hitting the sack a bit more exciting.
