Talk about adventures! These two veteran children’s authors know how to keep kids on the edge of their seats with stories that range across oceans. A fearless feline, Pudding Tat: Adventuring Cat travels the world in 1901, managing to plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel and even voyage on the ill-fated Titanic in Caroline Adderson’s latest work. Meanwhile, on pirate ship The Greasy Lobster, one poor orphan is stuck gutting fish in the galley—until fortune appears in the least likely of places. Perhaps he’ll be able to turn his luck around, even on a ship full of thieving pirates! Kids are sure to be transported by Sara Cassidy’s Scallywag on the Salish Sea, and the humorous presentations from both authors.
