About the event

Join award winning illustrator and author Jane Ray and discover the Elephant’s Garden!

From stranded mermaids and flying camels to golden statues and dancing princesses, Jane has been illustrating beautiful picture books for over 20 years. In her book The Elephant’s Garden, Jasmine has the most delicious fruit in the village—but someone is eating all her beautiful apples and apricots, kiwis and kumquats, papayas and peaches. Determined to discover the thief’s identity, Jasmine waits . . . and waits. Little does she imagine that when he arrives, he’ll lead her on a magical journey through the skies!

In this exciting and hands-on event, work with Jane to create a magical paper collage garden of your own.

Ages 5-10.
