Story Time with David Shannon

  • Kepler's Books 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States (map)

A new book by bestselling and award-winning author-artist David Shannon (No, David!) is a cause for celebration. And we will be celebrating when David Shannon introduces his exuberant new book Bizzy Mizz Lizzie that approaches the subject of over scheduled children (and adults) with breezy good humor while also delivering with his signature fun and heart.

Lizzie is the busiest, buzziest bee in Hivetown. Shannon’s vivid artwork and Lizzie’s endearing efforts to "do it all" will make children laugh aloud at her frantic antics as she juggles school, multiple sports, dance, violin, and art. With charm and determination, she longs to impress the Queen by winning a spelling contest, but she studies to the point of exhaustion. When she dozes off in the middle of the competition, the only solution is rest and her refreshing visit to the local Garden finally teaches Lizzie to stop and smell the flowers “which is exactly what bees are supposed to do.”

David Shannon is the internationally acclaimed creator of more than thirty picture books, including No, David!, a Caldecott Honor Book and his second New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, A Bad Case of Stripes, Duck on a Bike, and Too Many Toys!

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the ever popular David Shannon and discover a new favorite read.
