Author Lynn Plourde and artist Russ Cox will launch their new children’s book, “Merry Moosey Christmas,” on Saturday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Pittsfield Library.

“Merry Moosey Christmas” is a hilarious, unique holiday story that’s sure to become a perennial favorite. Rudolph just wants to enjoy the holiday without having to work. So he convinces Santa to accept a substitute. The search for the perfect replacement results in an eager and resourceful moose, who knows just how to use a headlamp and a GPS. But on Christmas Eve, Rudolph worries: Was the moose’s training complete? Will Santa and Moosey be able to get all the presents where they need to be?

Plourde is the award-winning author of more than 25 children’s books, including “You’re Wearing THAT to School?!,” “Pigs in the Mud in the Middle of the Rud,” “Wild Child,” “Dino Pets Go to School”  and “At One in a Place Called Maine.” 

Cox, the owner of Smiling Otis Studio, specializes in illustration for children. He is the illustrator of  “Freddy the Frogcaster” (written by Janice Dean) and “Major Manners Presents Nite-Nite Soldier” (written by Michael Hofer).

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 487-5880.
