Hippo Hippo is having a very cranky day. Her parents are trying so hard to make her happy, but she keeps getting crankier. What can they possibly do to get her to play with them.S ounds like a problem most parents can relate to, huh? Told with simple rhyme and inspired by his experiences as a “rookie daddy” to his now three year old daughter, Hippo Hippo’s Cranky Day is dedicated to parents everywhere whose patience (sometimes) and love (always) help them get through even the worst cranky day their little hippo can have. Eric will also lead a discussion on his life as an artist -- from his love of cartoons at an early age to the people and events that helped inspire his unique creative style. On display will be many of Eric’s drawings, including the original sketches and paintings used in the book.This is a drop in program, no registration is required.
