The Aya & Pete Book Tour

It's the Aya & Pete Book Tour!

Join us for a fun morning in cities across the United States as we explore "The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete!" Meet authors Serena Minott and Asha Gore, as they share the real-life story behind their bestselling children's travel book series, The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete, and selected readings.


Serena & Asha have lived and traveled extensively around the globe. At just 5 years old, Asha has visited 20+ countries and counting! These experiences inspired the authors to create a collection of beautifully illustrated books that tell the stories of a little girl boldly exploring the world and learning a lot about different places and cultures in the process.

"The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete" tells the stories of Aya, who travels the world with her parents and her stuffed sloth, Pete. Explore themes of travel, cultural awareness, empowerment and representation, all shared through fun exchanges between Aya & Pete, at this inspiring book reading and author Q&A.
