Crayons have feelings too, in the hilarious The Day the Crayons Quit, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking -- each believes he is the true color of the sun. What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best? Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and coloring a blue streak after sharing laughs with Drew Daywalt!

STORYTIME & BOOK SIGNING & MUSIC FUN
Barbara Bottner & Hillary George
Saturday, August 23, 10:30 a.m.
Ages 4-8

Join popular picture book author Barabara Bottner and super-librarian Hillary George (with her ukulele) for a celebration of Barbara Bottner's wonderful new book, Miss Brooks' Story Nook (where tales are told and ogres are welcome). It's a hilarious companion to the bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't) about the power of stories and storytelling. Missy loves her librarian, Miss Brooks and she loves to go to Miss Brooks' before-school story time. But to get to Story Nook, she has to pass Billy Toomey's house-and she does not love Billy Toomey. Billy always tries to steal her hat and jeers, "I'm going to get you!" Then one day Miss Brooks changes story hour to storytelling hour. She teaches the kids about characters and plot and action and satisfying conclusions and encourages them to make up their own tales. And that's when Missy has a brainstorm. She sees a way to use her made-up story to deal with her real-life bully. In this terrifically funny ode to inventiveness and ingenuity, Barbara Bottner and illustrator Michael Emberley celebrate the power of stories and how they can help us to rewrite our own lives.

  • Miss Brooks' Story Nook (where tales are told and ogres are welcome)  $16.99
