On Sunday, October 6th from 2-3pm, Mark Tatulli, who is most well-known for his comic strips "Lio" and "Heart of the City," will unveil his first novel for children entitled, "Desmond Pucket Makes Monster Magic." His new book tells the story of a terribly funny sixth grade boy, Desmond Pucket, whose hilarious magic pranks will have middle-school kids rolling with laughter. In addition to being a cartoonist, Tatulli is a well-accomplished film maker, animator, and the winner of three Emmy Awards.
The event is being held at the Newport Beach Public Library at 1000 Avocado Avenue in the city of Newport Beach, and is sponsored by the Newport Beach Public Library (NBPL) Foundation, with admission being free. A donation of $10 is suggested to help support the NBPL, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and there is no advance registration, so please arrive early to ensure you have a seat. A Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe has sponsored books to purchase, as well as a signing by the author. If you need additional information, please call: (949) 548-2411.
