Stop by story time to learn about Chesterton, the Cape Cod Weasel!

When Author Dean Coe and his granddaughter were walking in Shawme Forest, Sandwich Massachusetts, they met a small creature that scooted across the trail in front of them. Having easily eluded some barking dogs in pursuit, the winsome character stood momentarily and almost appeared to invite the two to join in the fun. The encounter became the impetus for Coe's Chesterton stories about a spirited, ever-curious, good-natured Cape Cod weasel.

The Chesteron series now features five books: Chesterton Keeps His Town Jumping, Chesterton Saves the Whale, Chesterton's Scary Breakfast, Chesteron's Winter Rescue, and Chesterton Saves the Bunnies.

When: Tuesday, July 2nd, 10:30 AM

Where: Eight Cousins Bookstore, 189 Main Street, Falmouth MA
