NICHOLAS DESHAW 'Loaf the Cat Goes to the Powwow' Story Time!

Wild Rumpus is thrilled to welcome local author NICHOLAS DESHAW to the bookstore to celebrate the release week of his debut picture book, Loaf the Cat Goes To The Powwow!

A Native American boy's cat surprises him at his first powwow—making for a very special dance indeed!

Loaf the cat loves to play with her boy, and when she’s particularly happy, she’ll make the purr sound for him. She also likes to keep tabs on him, so when he disappears one day, she decides to find him. She follows his smell to a place where there are drums and colors and lots of people—and then she’s excited to see her boy dancing fast, making the ribbons on his regalia twirl beautifully! When he takes a break, Loaf goes to greet him in her special way, making the powwow one her boy will never forget, and worthy of many purrs!

Join us for snacks and activities as we celebrate this colorful new picture book!
