Get ready to hear your next favorite classic holiday tale: Mr. Dog’s Christmas at the Hollow Tree Inn. Betsy Cordes, who grew up hearing this 19 th century tale of family and friendship, has lovingly republished an heirloom quality book so that today’s families can share in this magical story time tradition. What happens when the mischievous, but well-meaning Mr. Dog surprises his woodland friends with a Christmas treat? Come find out as we gather around Charlie’s Corner’s own snow covered redwood tree puppet theater. We’ll bring Mr. Dog’s story to life with puppets, music, food, special guests, and more. Charlie’s Corner will be transformed into a winter wonderland complete with Victorian era living room just like in Mr. Dog’s story. We’ll also meet award-winning artist Adam McCauley to learn about his historically inspired pen and ink illustrations. Our joyous celebrations culminates with Christmas carols and spiced mincemeat pastries – truly a night to remember!
