Every Dreaming Creature: An Afternoon with Brendan Wenzel

Community Event

Join us at The Book Stall on Tuesday, October 3 at 4:00 pm for an after-school discussion with award-winning author and illustrator, Brendan Wenzel, in partnership with Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District! He will be sharing his new picture book, Every Dreaming Creature, a visually stunning exploration of animal senses through dreams. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly says, “In experiential text and form-forward mixed-media art, Caldecott Honoree Wenzel imagines a young dreamer inhabiting the body and consciousness of a succession of animals….It’s one thing to watch creatures; in this empathetic picture book, Wenzel imagines what it’s like to be them.” This book is perfect for kids ages 4 to 8. Mr. Wenzel will be signing his books!

More About the Book: Welcome to a magical world of endless curiosity. You are a sleeping salamander. A dancing octopus. A speeding falcon…even a sneaking tiger and playful human child. As one dream slips into another, every page turn immerses you in the sensory wonder of the world and all its creatures, from the ocean depths to soaring skies, and everything in between. Each creature dreams and experiences life in a different way. Each is connected despite their differences.

Poetic and universal in its gentle message of interconnectedness, Every Dreaming Creature yields deeper meaning with every read, offering new discoveries hidden within the acclaimed artist Brendan Wenzel’s dazzling, vibrant artwork.
