Saturday Storytime with Carolyn Crimi

We are thrilled to welcome our pal Carolyn Crimi as the Special Guest Star for Saturday Storytime! This is an extra-special edition of Storytime because it's on Small Business Saturday. Join us at 10:30 AM as Carolyn shares some of her best stories, including her latest, I Am The Boss of This Chair, about a cranky cat who is NOT happy that a new kitten has joined the household.  

Carolyn Crimi has published over a dozen picture books, including Boris and Bella (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), Where's My Mummy? (Candlewick), and Don't Need Friends (Random House). She lives in Evanston, IL.  (We are so lucky to have her close to us!) Find out more about Carolyn at carolyncrimi.com. 

Join us every Saturday for Storytime!  These events are free and open to the public, and recommended for ages 3 and up. Balloons and great picture books!

When a new kitten joins the family, can a top cat learn to share his chair--and (almost) everything else, too?
"I, Oswald Minklehoff Honey Bunny III, am the boss of this chair. You may look at it, and you may walk by it, but you may not sit in it.
Because I am the boss of this chair, and that's that."

Bella Legrossi is the messiest monster in all of Booville. Her slime is the slimiest and her grime is the grimiest. Alas, she is neighbors with Boris Kleanitoff, a persnickety ghoul so tidy he vacuums his vampire bats. What could ever bring these two together? Why, a hoppin' Halloween party, of course!
