Misbehavior Is A Must: Unruly Picture Books For Our Times

  • Poptop Stage 705 Pike Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

How can picture books show young readers when it's okay to disobey?

Launching here at ALAMW, Noodlephant (Enchanted Lion Books) is a book about a noodle-loving elephant who pushes back against unfair laws, with messages about hospitality, creative resistance, and community action.

Join author Jacob Kramer and illustrator K-Fai Steele for a reading and a vibrant discussion about how picture books can scaffold critical thinking about authority, power, and compliance, and about how we can offer a joyful way to engage children in the remaking of our world.
