Join us in welcoming back author Lindsay Bonilla to celebrate her latest picture book, The Note Who Faced the Music! BONUS! Guitarist Brian Griffin will be joining the fun! Weather permitting, we'll host outdoors under our tent in front of the shop. Yay!
In this musical match for The Day the Crayons Quit, Half Note believes she’s so unimportant that she leaves the musical staff, but when the composer and other notes descend into hilarious cacophony without her, she learns everyone has a special part to play.
Lindsay Bonilla is the author of multiple picture books, including I Love You with All of My Hearts (Creative Editions) and Polar Bear Island (Sterling). While she doesn’t consider herself to be very musical, she has dabbled in playing keyboard, cello, and, most recently, the top two strings of an electric bass. She lives in North Canton, Ohio, with her husband and two sons.
