Owl & Turtle is honored to present Melissa Sweet and her latest book, The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant, and illustrated by Melissa!

“Words, Peter learned, were powerful things. And when he put them in long, neat rows, he felt as if the world itself clicked into order.”

This book is an inviting, visually engrossing portrayal of Peter Mark Roget and the creation of the thesaurus. Readers of all ages will marvel at Roget’s life, depicted through lyrical text and brilliantly detailed illustrations. This elegant book celebrates the joy of learning and the power of words.

There will be prizes, goodies, and fun for all. Mark your calendars: Saturday, September 20 from 10am-12pm!
