Story Time: Chris Raschka presents The Doorman’s Repose
Joining the ranks of New York City classics like Eloise, Stuart Little, and Harriet the Spy is a magical new book about the goings-on at a quirky old apartment building in uptown Manhattan. Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka’s latest book The Doorman’s Repose collects stories of the animal, human, and machine tenants at 777 Garden Ave: a doorman who can’t talk about baseball, a cupid-like elevator, a long-forgotten room, and the romance between a cerebral psychologist and a jazz musician, who are also mice. The latest offering from NYRB Children’s Collection, The Doorman’s Repose is sure to be loved by readers young and old, and New Yorkers of all kinds. Kids can join Chris in discovering what lies within 777 Garden Avenue, and take part in an interactive reading and drawing story time! Ages 4 to 12.
