KIDS STORYTIME: Sue Soltis presents NOTHING LIKE A PUFFIN and THE STARS JUST UP THE STREET at Flyleaf Books
October 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Nothing Like A Puffin celebrates the puffin, a truly amazing creature, which is completely unique and one-of-a kind. A ladder is nothing like a puffin. A house is nothing like a puffin. A newspaper is nothing like a puffin. . . . But wait! Who would have guessed? Could these things be more alike than you think? Young children will love following this mischievous puffin in an entertaining exercise in creative classification— and are guaranteed to start looking at everyday things in a whole new way.
In The Stars Just Up the Street, illustrated by Christine Davenier, a grandpa’s memories of brilliant night skies inspire a little girl to take action in a tale for budding community organizers and star lovers alike.
Sue’s forthcoming picture book The Moon Moved In, illustrated by Sonia Sánchez (illustrator of the award-winning Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away, written by Meg Medina), will be published by Chronicle Books in 2023.
Sue Soltis is the author of the picture books Nothing Like a Puffin, illustrated by Bob Kolar, and The Stars Just Up the Street, illustrated by Christine Davenier (both from Candlewick Press). Ever since she started writing poems in a Snoopy notebook at age 12, she’s been hooked on writing! She lives with her family in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where she’s trying to help all the little invertebrates in the yard by planting native plants, hosting mason bees, and composting—a subject found in her next picture book The Moon Moved In (forthcoming, 2023, Chronicle Books, illustrated by Sonia Sánchez)
