Story Time: Esmé Shapiro

Saturday, July 16, 11:00 AM
Author/Illustrator Story Time: Esmé Shapiro presents Ooko

Ooko has everything a fox could want: a stick, a leaf and a rock. Well, almost everything . . . Ooko wants someone to play with! The foxes in town always seem to be playing with their two-legged friends, the Debbies. Maybe if he tries to look like the other foxes, one of the Debbies will play with him, too. But when Ooko finally finds his very own Debbie, things don’t turn out quite as he had expected! Award-winning artist Esmé Shapiro’s bright and arresting visual style graces her first picture book, which combines her quirky illustrations with a funny, exuberant text that is a joy to read aloud. Children will giggle as Ooko does his best to impersonate a dog, and cheer when he finally discovers the perfect friend, and readers of all ages will love this charming story about the fine balance between friendship and being true to yourself. Esmé presents her new book with an interactive story time at Greenlight. Ages 3 to 8.
