Gibson’s Bookstore will welcome special guest author Eric Pinder for storytime on Saturday to share his new picture book, The Perfect Pillow.
In his strange new room on his big new bed, Brody tosses and turns, holding his stuffed dragon named Horst. His parents can’t help him fall asleep, so he has no choice to go out and search for a better bed. Is it a squirrel’s nest? A cloud? A rowboat on a pond? No, the moon is too bright, and the croaking frogs are too loud, so there’s nothing for it but to go back home and jump into his big new bed, where a friendly dragon makes a perfect pillow.
Young readers will enjoy floating along with Brody and Horst in this friendly nocturnal adventure with all the makings of a bedtime classic.
Pinder is the author of If All the Animals Came Inside and How to Share with a Bear, and other books for children, and he also has written several books about mountains and weather for adults.
Saturday’s event starts at 11 a.m. and is free and open to the public.
