Please join us for a very special story-time reading and booksigning with children's picture book author/illustrator Mike Curato featuring LITTLE ELLIOT, BIG CITY, winner of the 2015 Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Book Award Honor (which he will receive two days after his Octavia Books appearance).

Little Elliot, the polka-dotted elephant, is about to find out that life is full of sweet surprises . . . sometimes in the smallest of packages.

Amid the hustle and bustle of the big city, the big crowds and bigger buildings, Little Elliot leads a quiet life. In spite of the challenges he faces, Elliot finds many wonderful things to enjoy--like cupcakes! And when his problems seem insurmountable, Elliot discovers something even sweeter--a friend.

Mike Curato has the fortune of possessing a designer's brain, an illustrator's heart, and an artist's vision. You can find him on any given day walking around the city eating a cupcake (or thinking about it).
