Coming Up: Meet Author Jeff Root from Welcome to Monster Isle

It’s great for kids to meet an author and hear the book straight from the writer. San Francisco children's book author Jeff Root (and illustrator Scott Runcorn too) will lead story times on their new book, Welcome to Monster Isle on the dates below. Here’s a synopsis of the book from their website:

A family's vacation goes bananas when a perfect storm tosses their skipper's tiny boat off course. Now seven castaways are stranded on an uncharted desert island! Finnegan, his sister, parents and dog Howl venture into the wild and encounter a menagerie of colorful monsters. Can these hardy survivors befriend seven beasts straight from their wildest inaginations? Whimsical and lushly layered illustrations invigorate a zootopia of mythical creatures like the Yowie and Ogopogo. Adventurous readers will take a trip they'll never forget, since being lost was never so fantastic!

Here are three free story times in the Bay Area featuring the author and book.
