Join us for a Circus-Parade Storytime Extravaganza starring authors Anica Mrose Rissi and Micol Ostow. Micol, author of the hilarious Louise Trapeze books, will introduce the new Louise Trapeze Did NOT Lose the Juggling Chickens! (With dynamic illustrations by Brigette Barrager, a McNally favorite and illustrator of the the award-winning Uni the Unicorn.) Anica, author of the fabulous Anna, Banana series, will share her new Anna, Banana, and the Puppy Parade. (Illustrated by the fantastic Meg Park.) Anna, age 9, hopes to win the Puppy Parade, but life isn't always predictable when you're juggling two best friends, one challenging brother, third grade drama, and a lovable, mischievous dachshund named Banana. As for Louise Trapeze, she can't wait to show her circus parents how responsible she is; her best friend Ella takes care of Clementine the elephant, so how hard can it be to babysit Oona, Loona, and Maude, the juggling chickens? Micol and Anica will read, sign books, and help kids create a circus-parade project of their own. And yes, the rumors are true: our talented authors are baking delicious cookies to share with their new McNally Jackson friends. Hosted by Yvonne Brooks. 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Ages 5 to 10. Free.
