Storytime: Grizzly Boy

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 11:10 am - 11:30 am PST
1200 SW Park Ave Portland, Oregon 97205

One morning Theo decides he is no longer human. “I’m a GRIZZLY! I’m WILD AND FREE!” But being a grizzly boy isn’t easy if you still have to go to school. 

A fun, endearing, and sweet picture book, Grizzly Boy will have “wild and free” little grizzlies everywhere asking for repeat readings.

One day Theo wakes up and decides he’s a grizzly bear. He leaps out of bed, practices his growl . . . and his roar. . . and scratches his bottom on the bedpost. “Oh my! That’s very convincing,” his mother responds. 

When Theo finds a bowl of lettuce and berries for breakfast instead of his favorite Frosted Monster Bites cereal, he is still determined to have a day that’s wild and free, but he finds it’s more difficult than he expected, especially when you have a clever mother and still have to go to school where there are rules and more rules! 

After a challenging day as a grizzly boy at school, Theo learns you can follow the rules and still enjoy being wild and free!

Attendees 17 years of age and younger and/or with valid high school ID enjoy free admission. Advance 2018 Portland Book Festival passes available now.
