STORYTIME TAKEOVER: Ame Dyckman and Eda Kaban for THE NEW KID HAS FLEAS

Saturday, June 26, 2021 - 10:00am

Miss Jill and Square Books Jr. are pleased to welcome author and illustrator team Ame Dyckman and Eda Kaban for a special storytime takeover celebrating their picture book The New Kid Has Fleas.

Tune in Saturday June 26th at 10:00 am CT on Facebook Live.

There's a new kid in class, and they're . . . different.

They dress different. Talk different. Eat different.

And the word on the playground is: they have fleas.

But, one of their classmates wonders, what if we got to know the new kid? Visited their home (wolves' den)? Met their parents (wolves)? Shared a snack (squirrels)?

Maybe then the new kid wouldn't be so bad after all.

School’s in session for a howlingly fun “lesson” in preconceptions, differences, rumors, karma, and not just being the new kid, but befriending them.

From bestselling author Ame Dyckman and illustrator Eda Kaban, The New Kid Has Fleas is a hilarious picture book about a new kid in school who appears to have been raised by wolves.
