Children’s Author Randall de Seve Special Storytime & Booksigning

Join us for children’s author Randall de Sève for special storytime and book signing for Zola’s Elephant.

Illustrated by two-time Caldecott-honor winning artist Pamela Zagarenski, this tender,witty friendship story of imagination gone wild, by New York Times bestselling author Randall de Sève, shows how assumptions often cause
us to misjudge—and miss out.

But with a little courage, new opportunities and new friendships can be made. When Zola moves into the neighborhood, her new next-door neighbor is too shy to go over and introduce herself. Plus, Zola already has a friend to play with—an elephant!

What we imagine is not always true, as the little girl discovers. Luckily, she also discovers that being brave can lead to new friendships and even richer imaginary worlds-in this heartwarming book about friendship, moving, and the power of imagination by New York Times best-selling author Randall de Sève and Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator Pamela Zagarenski.
