Join us for a sea-themed story hour with authors Toni Buzzeo and Emilie Boon!
Toni Buzzeo is the author of the Caldecott Honor Book and New York Times bestseller One Cool Friend and many other books for children. She lives in Arlington, Massachusetts.
Emilie Boon was born in the Netherlands and spent her childhood in California and Mexico. She is the illustrator or author-illustrator of more than twenty books. She says Ella and Monkey at Sea was inspired by her own childhood experience sailing to America, when there really was a hurricane, and she really did draw a picture of the sun during the storm. Emilie Boon lives in the Boston area.
Leaving home and traveling to a whole new place is overwhelming, so it’s good to have a beloved toy who can help express how you feel.
