The prolific children's illustrator, best known for her work on the new Amelia Bedelia collection, visits for a special storytime to share her new picture books, Underpants Dance and I'm Gonna Climb a Mountain in My Patent Leather Shoes.
In Underpants Dance, underpants can be fancy or functional, but for pre-schoolers, it is always funny. Take Lily McBloom — she has the fancy kind and loves to show them off with a special dance to make everyone laugh. This horrifies her big sister who comes up with a plan to stop Lily's Underpants Dance forever. But Lily is one creative girl, and with a little outside-the-box thinking, she can keep right on dancing! For fans of Bear In Underwear and Ella Sarah Gets Dressed, this story celebrates the hilarity of kids' obsessions.
In I'm Gonna Climb a Mountain in My Patent Leather Shoes, Sadie is all set for her family's rustic camping trip with her favourite patent leather shoes, sparkly suitcase, ballerina skirt and other stylish accessories. But this is no ordinary adventure — she's on the lookout for Bigfoot! Together with her brother, she searches for clues, crawls through a cave and climbs a mountain to find the monster. Using her lasso of pearls and magic gold wand, Sadie proves that girly girls can get their hands dirty and be brave, too!
