The Return of Esther the Purple Gorilla

It’s almost Hanukkah (it’s early this year!), which means I get to share my story of Esther the shopping-challenged purple gorilla with young audiences. Last week, Temple Beth Elohim in Acton, MA invited me to read Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster to two religious school classes and sign books at the temple fair book sale.
Thank you to the temple community for making me feel so welcome, to the attentive children (who laughed at all my jokes!) and to Silver Unicorn Bookstore for arranging my participation and selling my books at the fair.

As I read, my wonderful helper Simon held up the photos.

Ready to hold up props depicting characters and key events in the story. Who knew Tom Brady would be in the class?
