Book Signing with Valerie Egar Sunday December 15th 11-1
We are also excited to announce Maine author Valerie Egar will be visiting the Village Toy Funatic during Christmas By The Sea weekend to sign her new book called "Oh No! Reindeer Flu!" Come meet Valerie and learn more about her wonderful book. When the reindeer fall ill on Christmas Eve, an adorable team of enthusiastic huskies help Santa Claus by volunteering to pull the sleigh. An eager puppy, Frost, also volunteers and ends up riding next to Santa, but almost tips the sleigh trying to catch a falling star. It's a lively Christmas story that will have children asking why Santa chose reindeer instead of huskies. The illustrations and story are magical! This is the perfect holiday book to add to your collection.
