About the event

Anything but sleep. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Heather S. Pierczynski is a children’s author and school social worker from “near Charlotte,” North Carolina. Despite objections from her human and fur family, she never goes to bed at a reasonable hour—even on the night before Christmas. A Creature Was Stirring is her first picture book. ABOUT STORYTIME Every Saturday at Plenty, we host a storytime perfect for young school-aged kids. From The Gruffalo to Charlotte's Web and everything in between, the whole fam is welcome to listen in!We have a VERY special guest reader coming today, because she has written one of our books we've had on display in our window: "A Creature Was Stirring". This is the sweetest new Christmas book, we love it as a read-aloud, and cannot WAIT to have Heather in the store with us. She will be available at 10:30 for a signing (this will make an EXCELLENT Christmas gift), and will join us for storytime at 11:00. ABOUT THE BOOK Packed with humor and heart, author Heather Pierczynski and illustrator Skylar Hogan present a laugh-out-loud, refreshing, and irresistibly fun spin on a timeless holiday tale, exploring why exactly only the mouse is singled out in the famous first lines of The Night Before Christmas.'Twas the night before Christmas,when all through the house,not a creature was stirring, not even a—MOUSE!He had never heard of a mouse not stirring.It was the most glorious night of the year!So he stirred. Squeaked! Eeked!
