Join us for a story time and for a "make your own mini coloring book" activity with author-illustrator Mark Gonyea!
ABOUT THE BOOK: A sleep deprived kid creates monsters of his own to banish the ones that are keeping him awake in this fiendishly funny picture book that's the perfect counting and bedtime story. In graphic artist and designer Mark Gonyea's clever counting book, a little boy snuggles in for a nap, but much to his surprise, silly little monsters pop up wherever he looks. First there's one at the window, then two appear when he blinks, and three pop out when one of the monsters sneezes. Before he knows it, there are ten kooky creatures in his room. But will the little boy find a way to outsmart those pesky pests?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mark Gonyea was born in northern New York. While spending the better portion of his early life watching TV, going to movies, and playing video games, little did he realize Star Wars was to be the essential ground work for a career in cartooning and graphic design. He now lives and works in Vermont.
