Larkspur- Kids' Pajama Party with Dev Petty

Larkspur Events

Dev Petty at DIESEL, A Bookstore in LarkspurDiesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes Dev Petty to the store as our guest bedtime book author on Friday, May 1st at 6pm.

Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Dev Petty will be here to read you a bedtime story. Get cozy in front of the fireplace, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies, get your books signed, and then head home for bed.

Frog wants to be anything but a slimy, wet frog. A cat, perhaps. Or a rabbit. An owl? But when a hungry wolf arrives--a wolf who HATES eating frogs--our hero decides that maybe being himself isn't so bad after all. In this very silly story with a sly message, told in hilarious dialogue between a feisty young frog and his heard-it-all-before father, young readers will identify with little Frog's desire to be something different, while laughing along at his stubborn yet endearing schemes to prove himself right.

Dev Petty was a senior visual-effects artist in the film industry. Her work appears in the Matrix Trilogy and dozens of other movies. She later left film to raise a family, but continues to draw, paint, and teach the visual arts while pursuing her passion for storytelling. She lives in Albany, California, with her husband, two daughters, some dogs, and other furry critters.

Our Kids' Pajama Party Series is held on the first Friday of every month. Keep up with store events by liking us on Facebook or joining our email list!
