Event date: 
Friday, November 15, 2013 - 10:30am

 


Illustrator Marc Boutavant visits Bank Street Bookstore for a special storyhour reading of Sonia Goldie's Ghosts

Ghosts sets the record straight about ghosts. Ghosts are not sheets with holes dragging around a ball and chain. Indeed, they're just as colorful and diverse as humans. Here you'll meet the ghost of the chimney, the TV, the kitchen, and the library, to mention just a few.

Boutavant's playful art endows Ghosts with a sense of childlike wonder and discovery.

Marc Boutavant is a graphic artist, illustrator, and comic strip author. He was born in Borgogne in 1970 and lives in Paris, France. He has illustrated many books and is especially well known for his book Around the World with Mouk.
