When a daughter simply cannot convince her father that the family needs a pet more than anything else in the whole world, she doesn't relent. Instead, she figures out how to approach the subject in a slightly different way: Her father becomes pet dad! Hear author/illustrator Elanna Allen share her story of how irresistible kids can be -- and how parents often learn to say no, no, no, then finally, yes! to a request that can be accommodated with love and humor. Join us at Bank Street Bookstore, 2780 Broadway, on Saturday, June 16 at 10:30 a.m. for a delightful story, then meet Elanna and talk to her about her art and ideas while she signs copies of her book.
