Mrs. Wigglesworth has been telling stories in Shoreline schools for over 10 years and has told stories in all but two of Shoreline schools (Lake Forest Park and Brookside). She wears bright clothes, big hats, big costume jewelry, and tennis shoes.
And now, there's a book about her! Mrs. Wigglesworth's Hat was written by her alter ego, Shoreline resident Pat Erickson and illustrated by Michael McMullin and Sue Brown.
This book is about a time when Mrs. Wigglesworth went to Meridian Park to tell stories and a gust of wind carried her hat away. What could she do? She always wears a hat to tell stories - would the children even recognize her without a hat?
Mrs. W. goes through a number of hats that her friends at Meridian Park share with her. Which one will be the one that makes her feel enough like herself to be able to tell stories to the kindergarten students?
The book launch party is on Saturday, February 13 from 1-3pm at the EM Event Center, 17537 15th NE, Shoreline. All are welcome.
Mrs. W will be there and would be SIMPLY DELIGHTED to see some of the students that she has told stories to over the years! Books will be available for purchase at $10 each, with $1 of each sale going to Pinky's Passion for a Parkinson's Cure. For the first 35 books sold, the purchaser will receive a free poster!
