Two Amazing Children's Authors/Illustrators
WOW! Greg Pizolli and Ryan T. Higgins, both on the same day. This is a ticketed event and you must register through the Clinton Book Shop. We anticipate a sell-out, so don't delay.
Ryan will be with us to read from and sign copies of his new children's book, Bruce's Big Move. After the events of Hotel Bruce, our favorite curmudgeonly bear shares his home with not only his four geese, but three rowdy mice besides Fed up with their shenanigans, Bruce sets off to find a rodent-free household. But as usual, nothing goes quite according to plan. . . A hilarious sequel for fans of the previous Bruce books, as well as a standalone discovery for new readers, Bruce's next reluctant adventure is sure to keep kids giggling.
Greg's new book is an amazing telling of The Twelve Days Of Christmas. Elephant is delighted to get a gift, but as the twelve days of Christmas continue, presents pile higher and higher A partridge in a pear tree? Cute But soon, her dad despairs. Two turtle doves? THREE French hens? And just what are they supposed to do with ten lords a-leaping? Kids will love each silly spread in this raucous take on the classic carol that is perfect for reading aloud around the fireplace.
