Imagination Friday with Michael Rex
Just in time for Halloween, join us on Friday, October 30, 1:00 to 1:40 to meet Michael Rex, author of We’re Going on a Good Hunt: A Petrifying Parody. A family treks through spooky landscapes looking for a monster, only to run back home when they actually find one. This hilarious companion to Goodnight Goon is a spooky parody of the familiar chant of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. “We’re going on a goon hunt. We’re going to catch a green one. What a spooky night! We’re not scared.”

Michael will share the book and how he created his spooky settings and funny text, invite children to do activities based on the book, and answer questions.

Imagination Fridays is co-sponsored by the Tucson Festival of Books and Worlds of Words/University of Arizona and will occur every Friday at 1:00-1:40 pm from September to December 2020 with a different author or illustrator each week. Add some excitement to Fridays with world-renowned children’s authors and illustrator to promote new books and encourage children as readers, writers, and illustrators.
