Where Literary Legends Are Born

Happy Book Birthday To CLOVIS KEEPS HIS COOL By Katelyn Aronson!

Out today is Katelyn Aronson’s latest picture book! CLOVIS KEEPS HIS COOL launches today with Page Street, illustrated beautifully by Eve Farb, to wonderful reviews.



Clovis used to struggle with his temper, but ever since he took over his late grandmother’s china shop, he’s been learning how to manage it. He pours tea, listens to soothing music, and always keeps Granny’s words in mind: “Grace, grace, nothing broken to replace.”

But when rivals from his football days come to heckle him at the shop, Clovis faces a big challenge that even Granny’s words and deep breaths might not be enough for.

Readers will fall in love with Clovis’s gentle soul in this heartwarming and entertaining story about finding inner peace and second chances.



“Ms. Aronson finds a way to turn her long-suffering protagonist away from wrath and toward self-mastery in this tidy moral tale.” –The Wall Street Journal

“A heartwarming, funny lesson in keeping one’s cool.” –Kirkus


Katelyn Aronson loves tea parties and has a beloved teacup from her own grandmother that she treasures just as much as Clovis does. As well as authoring children’s books, she works as an instructor of French and English, and is completing an MA in English/French translation through La Sorbonne University, Paris. She currently lives in both the Jura mountain region of France and near Lake Geneva in Switzerland.


Katelyn is the author of PIGLETTE and PIGLETTE’S PERFECT SURPRISE, two picture books out now with Viking. She is also the author of POO-DUNIT?, forthcoming with Candlewick, and WHEN PEANUT BUTTER MET JELLY, forthcoming with Viking.
