ONLINE: Bedtime Story w/ the Author & Illustrator: Tom Lichtenheld & Julie Rowan-Zoch "Louis"
Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story read by the author AND illustrator themselves! Author Tom Lichtenheld and illustrator Julie Rowan-Zoch read Louis, their laugh-out-loud story about a teddy who plots his escape from his owner’s suffocating affections.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A beloved teddy can bear it no longer and plots his escape from his owner’s suffocating affections in this laugh-out-loud picture book from New York Times best-selling creator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and Steam Train Dream Train fame, Tom Lichtenheld.
Louis the bear has had enough. From day one, life has been one indignity after another. If he's not being used as a hankie, he's being hung out to dry—literally. (No one likes clothespins used on their ears!) This teddy is sneaking away just as soon as he can. Then again, no use running off in the rain . . . or during a show-and-tell routine. Maybe Louis has something to lose, after all.
This fresh and funny take on a teddy bear come to life is a salty and sweet, grumpy and tender, sly tribute to the ties that bind.
