Ben Clanton, Dana Alison Levy, & Paul Czajack, Children's event! (Andover)

REX WRECKS IT! by Ben Clanton -

Look out! Here comes Rex! Children who love to construct — and those who love to destroy — will relate to this kid-pleasing tale that builds to a smashing finale.

Gizmo, Sprinkles, and Wild are fed up. Every time they build something with their blocks, Rex wrecks it! Whether it’s an out-of-this-world rocket, a magical heart, or the biggest, strongest, most awesomerific castle ever, Rex sends it crashing down with a "Rawr!" (and sometimes a sheepish"Rawry!"?). Isn’t there any way to make playtime fun for everyone? With Rex-size humor, Ben Clanton explores the challenges of friendship, the benefits of working together, and the joys of destruction.

 

*** BLOCK BUILDING CONTEST!***

Win a signed copy of local author/illustrator Ben Clanton's new book REX WRECKS IT! and an original drawing by Ben!

To enter, please pick up a contest sheet at the Andover Bookstore, and create your own awesomerific block creation. It can be a drawing of something made out of blocks, or attach a photo of something you made with blocks. Entries are due by October 1, and the winner will be announced by October 3.  

 

 

MONSTER NEEDS A COSTUME by Paul Czajak -
 
It’s almost Halloween, and Monster needs to decide what he’s going to be. With so many options — a fireman, a ballerina, a cowboy, a ninja—how will he ever decide? In this playful, rhyming story, Monster shows young readers that sometimes being creative and daring to try something new are the best solutions.
 
 
 
 
THE MISADVENTURES OF THE FAMILY FLETCHER
by Dana Alison Levy -
 
The start of the school year is not going as the Fletcher brothers hoped. Each boy finds his plans for success veering off in unexpected and sometimes diastrous directions. And at home, their miserable new neighbor complains about everything. As the year continues, the boys learn the hard and often hilarious lesson that sometimes what you least expect is what you come to care about the most.
