Join us for a special storytime with children's book illustrator Sergio Ruzzieron Thursday, October 17th at 11 a.m.

This imaginative story from Ruth Krauss—one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time—and celebrated artist Sergio Ruzzier is a remarkable collaboration that captures the timeless spirit of Krauss’s signature wit and humor. Paired with Ruzzier’s irresistible drawings, this story will delight readers of all ages and inspire them to roar like dandelions.

Sergio Ruzzier has written and illustrated many picture books, including Fox and Chick: The Party, a 2019 Geisel Honor Book; Two Mice; and more. He was awarded the prestigious Sendak Fellowship in 2011. His work has been awarded by American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, and The Society of Publication Designers. He also won the Parents’ Choice Gold Medal for The Room of Wonders and This Is Not a Picture Book. Born in Milan, Italy, he has been living in Brooklyn, New York, since 1995.
