Sage Stossel - On The Loose in Washington, D.C.

In-Store Book Signing

Rendezvous Info

Tickets: Free! No registration required.


Join us at the International Spy Museum Store for a book signing of On the Loose in Washington, D.C.: A Find-the-Animals Book. With simple rhymes and colorful, highly detailed images, cartoonist Sage Stossel creates a "Where's Waldo?"-style hit, setting animals free from the National Zoo and challenging children to find them in settings from the National Mall to Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and the Spy Museum. Children will have a ball helping the keeper find a monkey at the Library of Congress, a kangaroo at the Supreme Court, or a Hippo in the Tidal Basin! Over 100 animals are hiding cleverly in favorite DC locations in this colorfully-illustrated rhyming picture book.

"Beautifully illustrated, intelligently conceived, brilliantly witty and entertaining... If you are visiting, or if you live here, or if you just want to take memories with you, On The Loose in Washington, DC is the book to own."

                          —Tom Edsall, New York Times Columnist, former Washington Post political reporter (1981-2006); author of The Age of Austerity

"This imaginative book is as much fun for parents as it is for children. Sage Stossel is a longtime political cartoonist, and older readers will enjoy her clever sense of satire: a donkey and elephant tussle outside the Capitol, while a kangaroo approaches the Supreme Court. Younger readers will love finding the animals. And people of all ages will delight in seeing the nation's capital as it should be—a cheerful city with beautiful buildings, blue skies, and all kinds of happy creatures."
                            —Jennie Rothenberg Gritz, Atlantic senior editor and Washington, D.C., parent
