Bill in a China Shop

“Here’s to tea and bite-sized cakes;
Here’s to hoping nothing breaks.”

Bill in a China Shop is a delightful children’s book, perfect for reading aloud to younger ones. Written by Katie McAllaster Weaver in an easy, flowing rhyme, Bill in a China Shop is wonderfully illustrated by acclaimed Kansas illustrator Tim Raglin.

As the flyleaf explains, “Bill is no ordinary bull. Like most bulls, he is huge, and he isn’t so good around fragile things, but unlike other bulls, Bill also has a stunning collection of china cups.

“He’s on the lookout for one more perfect cup; the problem is getting inside a shop door.

“Imagine what a tricky situation Bill might get into one day when he finally finds a china shop that doesn’t say ‘Bulls Keep Out’. . .

To our great pleasure, illustrator Tim Raglin will be joining us here in the Haysville Community Library on Thursday May 20th at 1:30 in the afternoon. It’s a session neither you nor your favorite children will want to miss.
