Storytime with Roger Mello at Roscoe Books
October 19 @ 11:00 am
Please join us for an interactive reading with Roger Mello, Brazilian author of Charcoal Boys! Roger will be discussing his latest book, alongside favorites like You Can’t Be Too Careful! and Feather.
Roger Mello has illustrated over 100 titles – 22 of which he also wrote – and his unique style and adroit sense of color continues to push the boundaries of children’s book illustration. Rather than relying on written narrative to tell the story, Mello invites his young readers to fill the gaps with imagination. Mello has won numerous awards for writing and illustrating, including three of IBBY’s Luis Jardim Awards, the Best Children’s Book 2002 International Award, and the 2014 Hans Christian Andersen Award. In 2018, You Can’t Be Too Careful! was named a Batchelder Honor Book by the American Library Association.
