Patrick Jennings, Author of “Hissy Fitz” and “Guinea Dog” will be at Page 2 Books on Saturday, March 28 at 1 p.m.

Port Townsend-based author Patrick Jennings writes books kids love to read. They’re funny, fast-paced, mysterious, have great titles (“My Homework Ate My Homework”) — and they’ve got animals, like guinea pigs that behave like dogs and an irascible cat trying to train its owners in proper pet-care techniques.

Come meet Patrick, learn about his old favorites and new stories (perfect for kids moving into chapter books) and have him sign copies for you.
