Amity Blamity. Vol. one by Mike White — If you are looking for a normal adventure, this is not the graphic novel for you. However, if you want to read about a talking pig, Chester, his silent sidekick, Gretchen, and her unstable uncle, this is the book for you. Join them on their adventures to discover just who the mysterious white, fluffy, floaty beings are that have invaded their farm and how they are going to keep Uncle Downey from hurting himself as he tries to catch them.

While this program does not require registration, it does involve complex assembly and small pieces, and as such is intended for kids in third grade and up only.
Six-week session begins September 11, 10:00 AM
Registration begins August 27th at 9:00 AM. Please indicate any food allergies in the notes field when registering. CPL librarians worked hard to tailor this program for a specific age group, so Snack Tales is for kids in grades K-4 only, with a caregiver.
