Let Me Finish! was chosen as a NPR Best Book of 2016: 

'Such a fun romp! A boy with big glasses is trying his best to find a quiet spot to read, but no luck! Creatures of all sorts keep interrupting to tell him why his book is so great. As you race to the end trying to avoid spoilers, the book in his hands becomes the book in your hands. I can't wait to see what's next from first-time author Minh Lê!' 

- NPR's Book Concierge (Justine Kenin)

Families are welcome to bring their copy of Let Me Finish! to be signed by the author. Copies will be available for those who don't own the book, limit one per family.
