join us for story telling and paper crafts with author kristin riddick. this is an event especially for the 6-9 year olds. she will be reading from her new book: kat mcgee and the halloween costume caper. here’s a little bit about the book:
“halloween is kat mcgee’s day. no one in totsville, maine can bob a better apple or carve a more perfect pumpkin. but now the mysterious dr. s is threatening to take kat’s day away. dr. s hates halloween as much as kat loves it. kat’s in a panic over the holiday ban in totsville when grandmotherly magic transports her to the wondrous city of treatsville, where halloween costumes live all year long—and where the key to saving halloween in totsville just might lie. but treatsville is being menaced, too. costumes are disappearing, and the halloween magic is going with them. it’s up to kat to help. aided by the sugary-sweet spells of good witch dolce, her sidekick owl deleche, and kat’s best costumes ever—jujitsu princess and candy cane witch—kat must face down haunted forests, cruel tests, and the blackest magic the evil snaggletooth can throw at her. she’ll learn lessons about sharing the halloween glory—and learning to feel like a winner on every day, not just halloween.”
we will have paper crafts for the kids to decorate as well! sure to be a spooky afternoon. hope to see you there!
