Award winning children’s author and illustrator Yuyi Morales will be visiting the Puyallup Public Library on Saturday, April 20. While at the Library she will take time to teach children ages 6 years and up how to create beautifully decorated Señor Calavera masks. The Señor Calavera character comes from the children’s books Just a Minute!: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book
(a Pura Belpre Medal winning book for illustrations) and Just In Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet Book
. He may be a mischievous skeleton, but don’t worry, he’s not out to scare you! In fact, Ms. Morales created him in the fashion of the beautiful toys or the skeleton-shaped candy that Mexican artisans craft during the celebration of El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). This FREE imaginative mask making event will run from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. Space is limited. Please register in advance at the Children’s Desk or by calling 253-841-5454.
