Author Talk featuring Kevin Henkes

Five big and brightly colored elephants are on a mission in this picture book by Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes. With a text shimmering with repetition and rhythm, bright pastel illustrations, and an adorable parade of elephants, Kevin Henkes introduces basic concepts such as numbers, shapes, adjectives, adverbs, and daytime and nighttime.

Kevin Henkes is the author and illustrator of more than fifty books. He received the Caldecott Medal for Kitten's First Full Moon in 2005, and Waiting won a Caldecott Honor and Geisel Honor in 2016. Kevin Henkes is also the creator of a number of picture books featuring his mouse characters, including the #1 New York Times bestsellers Lilly's Big Day and Wemberly Worried, the Caldecott Honor Book Owen, and the beloved Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse.

Admission is FREE, but registration is required--books will be available for purchase from the Boulder Book Store, in the Canyon Gallery, following the talk.
