A program for all ages! Learn how to tap into your creative and imaginative side to write phenomenal children's books.

Author Nancy Carlson will speak at the Detroit Lakes Library on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 6:30 p.m.


Enjoy Carlson's character, Henry, and all of his exploits in the newer titles featured below.

• "Start Saving, Henry"

Henry's finally old enough to get an allowance, and he can't wait to spend it every week on giant jawbreakers, a huge pencil, and other silly things.

But when Henry finds something he really wants, he discovers that saving money can be more difficult, and more rewarding, than he ever imagined.

With candy-bright artwork, a popular main character, and a story that every child will relate to, Nancy Carlson's new book makes perfect "cents" for young readers!

• "Henry's Amazing Imagination."

Henry loves show-and-tell, because he can tell the class about his neighbor's pet dinosaur, the snowman he built that's as big as his house, and the alien that landed in his yard.

But when his classmates start asking questions -- and call him a fibber -- Henry has to find a new outlet for his stories.
