Event description

Description

What do you get when you put Cale Atkinson and Ben Clanton in the same room? A whole lot of squiggles, scribbles and animations! They not only bring their unique illustrative styles to children’s books, but they each have remarkable tales to tell. Make sure to watch out for Clanton’s characters, Narwhal and Jelly, as they embark on an unforgettable journey through the ocean. Atkinson’s latest book, Where Oliver Fits, teaches kids that fitting in isn’t all that it’s shaped up to be.
