Molly Idle - Flora and the Penguin

Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 1:00pm

Part of our special Children's Book Day events! 

Having mastered ballet in Flora and the Flamingo, Flora takes to the ice and forms an unexpected friendship with a penguin in Flora and the Penguin. Twirling, leaping, spinning, and gliding, on skates and flippers, the duo mirror each other's graceful dance above and below the ice. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results. Artist Molly Idle creates an innovative, wordless picture book with clever flaps that reveal Flora and the penguin coming together, spiraling apart, and coming back together as only true friends do.

Molly Idle began her career as an artist working for DreamWorks Animation, and from there she leapt into the world of children's books. She lives in Tempe, Arizona.

 

Other authors visiting for Children's Book Day include Ian Lendler (The Stratford Zoo Midnight Revue Presents Macbeth) and Shirin Bridges, Janie Havemeyer, and Gretchen Maurer (A Treasury of Glorious Goddesses Series)!
