JC: Storytime | Ame Dyckman Presents YOU DON'T WANT A UNICORN

    03/11/2017 - 11:00am

    This event takes place in our Jersey City store

    Join us for a special edition of our Saturday morning storytime in Jersey City with Ame Dyckman!

    When a little boy throws a coin into a well asking for a pet unicorn, he has no idea what kind of trouble he’s in for when his wish comes true. Sure, unicorns have purple hair and can fly, but he soon learns they cannot be house trained; they poop cupcakes and shed sparkles everywhere. When they get excited and jump, they poke holes in the ceiling! Worst of all, when your pet unicorn brings a unicorn party to town – your problems will multiply, and multiply, and multiply! 

    Ame Dyckman wanted a unicorn, too. She’s the award-winning author of the New York Times bestselling Wolfie the Bunny, a 2015 Parents magazine Best Book of the Year selection. As well as Horrible Bear!, Boy + Bot, and Tea Party Rules. Dyckman lives in New Jersey with her family, goofy cat, and hair bow collection—but no unicorns (anymore). Please visit her online at www.amedyckman.com and follow her on Twitter @Amedyckman.

    RSVPs encouraged but not required.
