Join us for a special edition of our Saturday morning storytime in Jersey City with illustrator Mika Song as she reads from HARRY AND CLARE’S AMAZING STAYCATION by Tom Staunton.
Harry and Clare are stuck at home for their spring break. No exotic locations, no plane trips, no exciting plans. So they make their own fun: the living room becomes Mars, the diving board at the pool becomes a pirate’s plank and the local playground where the man-eating octopus lives. The trouble is, older sister Clare is the one making all the rules, and that means deciding on the game AND eating all the food. But Harry has a plan to turn the tables… if he can just keep his snacks out of the Abominable Snowman’s clutches!
MIKA SONG is a children’s writer and illustrator who likes to make stories about sweetly funny outsiders. She grew up in Manila, Philippines, and Honolulu, Hawaii, before moving to New York to study animation at Pratt Institute. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
