Twice as Nice: Wendy Mass and Suzanne Selfors at Bank Street Bookstore

Event date: 
Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 4:30pm
You won't want to miss the dynamic author duo of Wendy Mass (Pi In The Sky) and Suzanne Selfors (The Sasquatch Escape: The Imaginary Veterinary). Mass and Selfors are a twice-as-nice combo bringing you double the fun with their two exciting new novels for kids.


Pi In The Sky by Wendy Mass chronicles the adventures of Joss, the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. Joss' not-so-great job is delivering pies which hold the secrets of the universe. But when Earth suddenly disappears, Joss must figure out how to bring it back, with the help of  Annika, an outspoken Earth-girl.
In Suzanne Selfors' The Sasquatch Escape: The Imaginary Veterinary young Ben Silverstein and Pearl Petal find a wounded baby dragon, and take it to the only veterinarian in town. Dr. Woo's Worm Hospital turns out to be a secret refuge for imaginary creatures, and when a rather large, rather stinky and very hairy creature escapes, the two children set out in search of the runaway Sasquatch.
