SAVOY: Andrew Katz (How to Catch a Bear Who Loves to Read) Saturday Story Hour Special Guest

Savoy Bookshop & Café presents Saturday story hour special guest Andrew Katz (How to Catch a Bear Who Loves to Read). This event is free and open to the public.

About the Book

Julia has many friends in the forest by her house. She climbs trees with Scotty the squirrel, plays hide-and-seek with Abigail the groundhog, and has farting contests with Frieda the skunk. Julia dreams of meeting a bear, a bear she could play with and hug. But no bear has ever shown its snout.

One day, inspired by a book she’s reading, Julia brings honey (the perfect bear snack) into the woods. The next day, she tries bringing blueberries. But to her great surprise, it’s not just sweet smells that can attract a bear!

So begins a thrilling quest that will bring Julia to new corners of the forest―and of her heart. Introducing a spunky young heroine with a nose for books, How to Catch a Bear Who Loves to Read invites children to share their love of reading―and of bearnormous hugs―with Julia.
