Author/illustrator Ursula Vernon unveils the second book in her Hamster Princess chapter book series on Monday, March 14, at 7:30 PM in the Library’s Children’s Room. Titled Of Mice and Magic, the heavily-illustrated book for ages 7-10 tells what happens when spunky Princess Harriet the Invincible sets off to figure out how to lift the curse from 12 dancing princesses in a neighboring  kingdom. In its review, Booklist noted: “Fans of twisted feminist fairy tales will be delighted, and Harriet’s existing followers won’t be disappointed with this second installment.” At our event, Vernon will talk about the Harriet books, as well as her popular Dragonbreath series. Copies of Vernon’s books will be available from Politics & Prose, but the program is free and no purchase is required to attend.
