Sunday Storytime welcomes local author Venus Martinez Sharp in celebration of her fun and adventurous new picture book, Sami and the Orange Balloon: Adventures Over Campbell. (Ages 0-5)
Follow Sami on an incredible flight in a creatively illustrated picture book about courage, kindness, creativity and living in the moment.
"Now I just need a big ballon!" Sami says to himself as he prepares to ride to school in a hot air balloon equipped with his legos, cars, goalie gloves, magic wand and orange crayon. And so begins the imaginative and creative tale of a young boy on an unforgettable adventure.
For fans of Where the Wild Things Are and Harold and the Purple Crayon, comes Sami and the Orange Balloon, honoring creativity and a love of adventure, as well as courage and kindness in an updated 21st Century style. Creatively illustrated in the tradition of Mo Willems' Knuffle Bunny, this highly imaginative tale comes to life in the clouds over Silicon Valley's very own town of Campbell.
