    Storytime with Raj Haldar and Chris Carpenter

    Join us for a storytime with authors Raj Haldar and Chris Carpenter! Turning the traditional idea of an alphabet book on its head, P Is for Pterodactyl is perfect for anyone who has ever been stumped by silent letters or confused by absurd homophones. This whimsical, unique book takes silent letter entries like “K is for Knight” a step further with “The noble knight’s knife nicked the knave’s knee.” Lively illustrations provide context clues, and alliterative words help readers navigate text like “A bright white gnat is gnawing on my gnocchi” with ease.
