Our Summer Reading Program is really swinging! Last week we had awesome local teen author Connor Eyzaguirre. We heard how he developed his superhero Rock Salt and we talked about our favorite heroes. Everyone was asked to create their own superhero and took home a form to write down their story. On July 26th, Connor will be joining us again to hear about the superheroes you created and have fun at our party! This week we have children’s author Kathleen Shields, who is the creator of Hamilton Troll. Get to know Hamilton Troll in his fun-filled new children’s book. “Hamilton Troll meets Pink Light Sprite” is an entertaining rhythmic adventure that introduces this charismatic young troll and prepares you for his many coming adventures.
Not only is Hamilton as small as a mouse and lives in a hole next to a chopped down tree, but a terrible storm just rolled in and now rain is flooding his home! Soaking wet and scared, he runs to hide but soon meets a beautiful sprite named Pink Light. This lovely creature befriends bewildered Hamilton and helps him solve his problem.
This charming and playful first book in an all new children’s story series will not only entertain but educate young readers. The vibrant and brilliant graphics will draw readers young and old to this cute young troll’s appeal.
Here is our updated schedule:
June 28th: Meet the Author: Kathleen Shields
July 5th: Playing in the Potato Patch
July 12th: Snakes Alive!
July 19th: Fun with Gnomes and Fairies
July 26th: Closing Readings and Party w/ Connor!
