Special Event at the West Portal Library!
Mr. Pack Rat Really Wants That
This SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 at 11 AM*
*please note special time!
Join us at the West Portal Library this Saturday at 11 a.m. for a special reading with Marcus Ewert, author of 10,000 Dresses, who will read from his witty and entertaining new picture book, Mr. Pack Rat Really Wants That. Following the reading and discussion, we will do a fun craft project!
Mr. Pack Rat is a particularly acquisitive small mammal with a hoarding problem (sound like someone you know?). Through trial and error, he begins to question whether having more things is really the secret to happiness. Although real life pack rats (genus Neotoma) build large piles of debris to nest in, Mr. Pack Rat isn't satisfied with plain old sticks and leaves. He wants novelty and variety, and - unfortunately for him - he owns a magical magnet that can summon anything he desires.
Come and laugh, meet the author, and stay for the craft!
