We invite you to bring your little ones to the bookshop for a story time with one of our favorite local authors, Dean Coe, on Saturday afternoon, April 20 at 1:00 PM. Dean will read from his adorable book, Chesterton Saves the Bunnies.
Chesterton, Cape Cod’s good-natured weasel, once again surprises us with his unique and non-weasel like behavior as he demonstrates empathy and caring for fellow creatures in the wild. Remembering a time when his own family was faced with losing their habitat, Chesterton leads a family of endangered and threatened Cottontails to a homeland that can be safe for many years to come. Chesterton Saves The Bunnies includes a glossary, parent/teacher guide and infographic from US Fish And Wildlife.
Dean Coe is the author of the Chesterton Series, children’s picture books that feature an ever-curious and good natured Cape Cod weasel named Chesterton. Earlier books include Chesterton Keeps His Town Jumping, Chesterton Saves the Whale, Chesterton’s Scary Breakfast and Chesterton’s Winter Rescue.
Coe’s books have been illustrated by former Sandwich High School students Robyn Whaples and Sasha Rudyakov.
Formerly a principal of his own executive recruiting firm, Coe invested 30 years navigating corporate cultures. Now, an avid kayaker, he navigates Cape Cod estuaries and leads narrated kayaking tours through the Sandwich marsh. A ‘self taught’ naturalist, his books introduce young readers to life on the marsh and woodlands of the Cape and New England through the adventures of Chesterton, an intuitive and good-natured weasel.
A narrated version of Chesterton Saves The Bunnies will be available for our event. This is a $4.40 downloadable file that will be available free to anyone buying a book at the signing.
