Book Signing with Author David Habben

It’s the little things that can turn a bad day into a better one. One morning, Sherman’s bad mood takes the form of a literal rain cloud, soaking him and making his mood—and the weather—worse. An unexpected encounter with imaginative children helps Mr. Sherman find the silver lining to his cloud and brightens his day, turning his outlook from pessimism into optimism. ‚Äč The expressive graphic art creates an eye-catching and meaningful story. Readers will be empathetic to Sherman’s woes and uplifted when reminded that the sun does eventually come out again after the rain. Join us in welcoming David Habben to Provo City LIbrary on the evening of Wednesday, June 19th, to discuss and sign copies of his new picture book, Mr. Sherman's Cloud. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.
