03. A Morning with Jon Klassen

Who can resist hearing from the charming, multi-award-winning author and artist, Jon Klassen? In this event for little ones, the ubiquitous storyteller will delve into his new book The Skull, a funny, spooky tale of Otilla, a little girl who finds herself lost in a dark forest only to find shelter in a big abandoned house. It turns out there’s a skull living there who’s afraid of something. Can Otilla save herself and this strange companion? With Klassen’s unique style and engaging presentations, this is a fun morning for kids right before Halloween. Grades 1–3.
