KISS Guitarist TOMMY THAYER To Sign Copies Of 'Ernest Hummingbird' Book In Valencia This Weekend

KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer and author/animator David Feiss will debut their new book and storybook application this weekend. The book reading and sing-along is set to be followed by a book signing at Barnes & Noble at 23630 Valencia Blvd in Valencia, California on Saturday, March 31 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

"Ernest Hummingbird", created by Feiss ("Cow And Chicken") is a children's story of a lovable young hummingbird named Ernest who wants to sing and not just hum. When his parents initially object, Ernest and his two BFFs Bilfickle Bee and Edgar Allen Poodle set out on a musical journey of wonder, comical roadblocks, and eventual success, finding their way to sing on the big stage!

Thayer produced the "Ernest Hummingbird" animated storybook available at the Apple app store, narrated by Grammy-Award-winning artist Darius Rucker, and filled with original music and sing-along songs written by Thayer, Feiss and Peter Asher, one-half of the '60s pop duo PETER AND GORDON and a former vice president of Sony Music Group.

Charles Mechem, former CEO of Taft Broadcasting, who owned Hanna Barbera for 25 years, heads Mechem Media and is also a partner in the "Ernest Hummingbird" project.

A series of "Ernest Hummingbird" storybooks for the 4 to 8-year-old demographic are planned. Multimedia, short-content stories and sing-along songs are in development.
