Signing with Wendell Minor!
In celebration of Community Day, beloved local author/illustrator Wendell Minor will be at The Hickory Stick, signing copies of his new storybook, Galapagos George at 1:00pm! Don't forget to stop by!
This is the story of the famous Lonesome George, a giant tortoise who was the last of his species, lived to be one hundred years old, and became known as the rarest creature in the world. His story gives us a glimpse of the amazing creatures inhabiting the ever-fascinating Galapagos Islands.
Renowned naturalist and bestselling author of the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves and the critically acclaimed Everglades Jean Craighead George once again introduces children to the wonders of the natural world in this incredible evolution story set in the Galapagos Islands. The back matter features key terms, a timeline, and further resources for research.
