Join us for a special Saturday Story Time with children's author Karen Sturtevant and illustrator Susan Bahr! Your little ones will love the story book The Adventures of Gert and Stu and Zippy Too.
Every parent knows how a simple cardboard box can become their child's favorite toy. Gert and Zippy are thrilled to have Stu, a new friend, join them in make-believe using Gert's adventure box. What happens when they land in a strange world and the box gets eaten by a dragon? How will they get home? Using creativity and bouncy rhymes these beautifully illustrated characters delight us with their story of friendship and remind us to appreciate the wonder of a child's imagination.
