“Once upon a tale… Simon takes listeners to a time and place, far away, drawing from a world of stories. From hundreds of tales of myth, legend and folklore, he tells of heroes and heroines, talking animals, dragons, trolls, tales of pirates, Greek gods, and fairies. All his stories are filled with many kinds of treasure and adventure. Simon performs using unique voices to animate his tales and adds expressive body language, which brings the stories to life. Simon’s often-funny storytelling will delight children and adults alike.” (quoted from Simon’s web site)

We had a host of our own superheroes here at the library last Tuesday for a Superhero Training Workshop! In addition to donning masks and capes, there were numerous challenges to overcome, including: Knocking Down the Villains, developing Mighty Muscles, Web throwing, passing through the Tunnel of Doom, and completing a daring Volcano Rescue Mission, to name just a few. Everyone passed with flying colors. Congratulations, Superheroes!
