Aaron will be reading from his two hysterical books -- Creepy Carrots! and his newest, A Creepy Pair of Underwear! This event is best for ages 4 - 9. Booksigning following the storytime.
Light snacks will be provided.
About the Book: From the celebrated team behind Creepy Carrots!, Aaron Reynolds and Caldecott Honor winner Peter Brown, comes Creepy Pair of Underwear, a story about overcoming fears and the toddler to big-kid transition.
Jasper Rabbit is NOT a little bunny anymore. He's not afraid of the dark, and he's definitely not afraid of something as silly as underwear. But when the lights go out, suddenly his new big rabbit underwear glows in the dark. A ghoulish, greenish glow. If Jasper didn't know better he'd say the undies were a little, well, creepy. Jasper's not scared obviously, he's just done with creepy underwear. He tries everything to get rid of them, problem is....they keep coming back!
