In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, I present to you the “Re-Seussification Project”, courtesy of School Library Journal. Click HERE to see artists re-illustrate The Cat in the Hat in the style of Jon Klassen and Arnold Lobel, Horton Hatches the Egg in the style of Laurent de Brunhoff and William Steig, and, my favorite, Green Eggs and Ham in the style of Eric Carle and Tomie DePaola. The real artists are listed at the end of the blog post, so be sure to look.
We have our own Seuss-ing going on. Kids can make a guess on how many fish are in the bowl. Names will be drawn after tomorrow, so be sure to drop by and make a guess.
Also coming up in March: Coffee with the Candidates – an informal “meet and greet” with your neighbors who are running for town office. It takes place on Saturday, March 24 from 9:30 a.m.- 11:00 a.m., and refreshments will be served, thanks to the Friends of Plumb Library. We need to clear out at 11, because at 11:30, Aoife Clancy will be performing her “Musik -n – Fun – St. Paddy’s Day Celebration” for children ages 4-10. Pre-registration is required. This is going to be a fun program, so sign up now.
We have been highlighting a Book of the Month since January. January’s book was The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern. February – Caleb’s Crossing, by Geraldine Brooks. March’s book is The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, by Catherynne Valente. I saw her read from this book, to music written and performed by Tricksie Pixie, at the Boston Science Fiction Conference last month. I brought the library’s copy with me, and had her sign it. It’s currently out, but place a reserve. These are all books that the three of us read and liked, so they come highly recommended.
That’s it for now. I’m off to a knitting retreat with my fellow Rochester knitters, so have a great weekend, everyone!
