Celebrate the publication of Robin Newman’s latest Hildie Bitterpickles Needs Her Sleep
April 28, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
A redheaded young witch named Hildie can’t get to sleep after a giant moves in next door with a “noisy beanstalk elevator” that goes “clangity, clank, clunk all night long.” Then an elderly woman with a “gazillion” noisy children shows up (their home is part Converse sneaker, part retro mobile home), and a wolf huffs, puffs, and blows the roof off Hildie’s house.
This is an exceptionally strong debut for Chris Ewald whose gauzy, caricatured images meld playful modern details with familiar storybook figures: readers will have fun spotting cameos by Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet, and more.
