Woodland Primary School's library will welcome children's book author and illustrator Melissa Iwai and author Denis Markell on Monday, Nov. 19. The school is at 17366 W. Gages Lake Road, Gages Lake.
Iwai, a returning guest to the primary school, will present her latest book, "Hush Little Monster," to the school's Early Childhood students. "Hush Little Monster," which she illustrated, was written by Markell, who's also her husband. The story features a monster father singing his own version of the popular lullaby with a humorous twist.
Iwai also will be sharing some of her other admired stories such as "Soup Day" and "Big Bad Wolf." The presentations will take place at the following times 10:15-10:45 a.m., 11:00-11:30 a.m., 1:15-1:45 p.m., 2-2:30 p.m., 2:45-3:15 p.m. "Woodland Primary is excited to welcome this husband and wife dynamic duo to our library," said school library media specialist Kelly Shiffer. "Students are going to love listening to this fun new version of the classic lullaby as well as watching Iwai create original illustrations before their very eyes."
