In a big abandoned house\, on a barren hill\, lives a skull. A brave girl named Otilla has escaped from terrible danger and has run away\, and when she finds herself lost in the dark forest\, the lonely house beckons. Her host\, the skull\, is afraid of something too\, something that comes every night. Can brave Otilla save them both? According to Kirkus Reviews\, “Caldecott medalist Klassen’s signature style is brought to bear on a Tyrolean tale imbued with equal parts comfort and creepiness. . . . One can only hope that children will tell and retell this reinterpretation many times to themselves throughout the years.” The New York Journal of Books adds\, “This is a book sure to be read over and over and over again. Even the most reluctant reader will be eager to keep these pages turning.” \n***Please note that the book signing will be conducted on a first-come\, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater\, people wishing to have books signed will be given a number\, and the book signing will take place in numerical order after the on-stage presentation.*** \n URL: LOCATION:Meyerland Performing and Visual Arts Middle School\, 10410 Manhattan Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77096\, United States CATEGORIES:2023/2024 Inprint Cool Brains!
