Join James Kochalka for an event featuring his new young-reader book, Johnny Boo is King! James will give a drawing lesson on How to Draw Johnny Boo and Also Ice Cream.
ABOUT THE BOOK: The beloved young-reader series by Eisner Award winner James Kochalka returns with a new adventure fit for a king!
Johnny Boo is wearing a crown on his head, so that means he’s the king! Squiggle wants to be king too, so he puts a rock on his head. After a brief argument, they decide to share their new flying castle, and fly to the moon. Or are they just pretending? After a madcap encounter with the Ice Cream Monster, they finally get too sleepy to stay awake…making this silly story excellent for bedtime.
