Tuesday's Child Presents:

Elisa Kleven

Critically acclaimed author and illustrator of The Paper Princess Series, The Lion and the Litte Red Hen, and The Wishing Ball.

Kitty cats, princesses, dancing deer, lions and little red hens ? this is what Elisa Kleven?s award-winning children?s books are made of. Critics have described her stories as "immensely satisfying" and "joyful" celebrating the creative spirit, her artwork as "exuberant" and "exquisitely detailed" and her characters as "charmingly expressive". Ms. Kleven's books are not only joyously written with playful prose and beautifully illustrated with her folk-like drawings and trademark collages; they also teach children lessons about foreign cultures and contain hopeful messages for the future. Please join us at the library as Elisa Kleven reads from some of her wonderful picture books and shares her newest book, Angels Watching Over Me, due out in March.

Admission is free.

Author available for signing after the program.
