William Steig's Creative Work Continues to Inspire Both Young and Old

Kingwood High School Theatre arts program will be presenting a musical production of Shrek later this month. Before Shrek huge success on the silver screen, or adapted into the musical play,  there was William Steig's SHREK!. 

So, I thought it would be fun to highlight the book that started it all, as well as,  other fabulous stories by this beloved and extremely talented author. If you happen to be by the Atascocita Branch Library, I currently have a small display for our costumers. I am sure that these items will check out quickly; so, if you need help requesting items please ask a staff member for assistance.
