What’s a better Saturday than a book event around an adorable dog? Momo, the star of the Find Momo series, came to visit Hicklebee’s so of course I had to go! I don’t think I’ve seen so many adults, kids, and dogs fit inside one store! Come for the dog photos, stay for the endearing tales of traveling in a van with a pup!
Event Recap & Review
Find Momo began with Andrew Knapp photographing Momo during hide and fetch. Momo would hide behind trees and peek out, which is basically the most adorable thing ever. He’s now an Instagram sensation, traveling the world with Andrew to take photos in the most fun places.
When asked how Andrew gets Momo to hide, he gives a simple answer – he’s a very good boy. Having met Momo, I can attest to this. He played and met people while Andrew shared a slideshow from their trip to Europe. We learned that Europe is far more dog friendly than the US, with some parts being very open. Andrew also shared how he set up some of the more elaborate shots, including the cover.
The books are not only filled with gorgeous land- and city-scapes but small stories about their time together in each place. In the most recent book set in Europe, we see Andrew’s dad joining for part of the journey and Andrew and Momo helping build an outhouse! Super cool to see their experiences.
I loved that the books events benefited local rescues. I also loved that Andrew has a Momo stamp so signed books are from the both of them!
I can’t wait to see where Momo and Andrew visit next. I had a blast finding Momo in the shots – some were really challenging!
This sounds so cute! I’m glad you got to actually go the event – I always love seeing my blogging friends interact with authors. Thanks for the post!
