Award-winning artist and bestselling author David Shannon will present his latest book for children “Mr. Nogginbody Gets a Hammer” on Friday, October 25.

The program begins at 6 p.m. in the Sycamore Room of the Norman P. Murray Community Center at 24932 Veterans Way.

David Shannon has written and illustrated more than 35 books for children. In 1999, his semi-autobiographical story, “No, David!” received a Caldecott Honor award. 

Brimming with Shannon’s characteristic creativity and humor, “Mr. Nogginbody Gets a Hammer” will delight children and adults alike. After snagging his toe, Mr. Nogginbody makes a visit to his local hardware store in search of solutions. Armed with a shiny new hammer, he successfully fixes the nail protruding from his floor. However, the satisfaction of his first repair carries him away, and he figures anything resembling a nail―from a lamp switch to a fire hydrant―can be fixed with a good whack. The results are predictably and theatrically disastrous, until Mr. Nogginbody arrives at a gentle awakening and recognizes not everything is a nail.

This exciting author event is free and open to all ages. Books will be sold at the event by A Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe.
